Appeal From Lee County
Clifton Newman, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-524
Submitted October 1, 2004 – Filed October 14, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz III, of Columbia, for Appellant. 

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Cecil Kelley Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kelly Tention appeals his guilty plea to unlawful conduct toward a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  Counsel for Tention attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Tention filed a separate pro se response.

After a review of the record as required by Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits.  Accordingly, we dismiss Tention’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

STILWELL, BEATTY, and SHORT, JJ., concur.
