v.

Appeal From Georgetown County
Paula H. Thomas, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2004-UP-576
Submitted November 1, 2004 – Filed November 16, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, for Appellant.                        

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor John Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  James Holmes, Jr. appeals his conviction for armed robbery, possession of a firearm, financial transaction theft, and financial transaction card fraud.  His counsel attaches a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating his review of the record leads him to conclude Holmes’s appeal lacks legal merit sufficient to warrant granting Holmes a new trial.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief, we dismiss Holmes’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991).

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

HEARN, C.J., GOOLSBY and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


[1]   We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rules 215 and 220(b)(2), SCACR.
