Jerry Raysor, Appellant,

v.

State of South Carolina, Respondent.


Appeal From Sumter County
 Clifton Newman, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-617   
Submitted December 1, 2004 – Filed December 9, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, Office, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM:  Jerry Raysor appeals the dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), counsel for Raysor attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he had reviewed the record and concluded Raysor’s appeal is without legal merit sufficient to warrant a new trial.  Raysor did not file a separate pro se response.

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

HUFF, KITTREDGE, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


[1]   Because oral argument would not aid the court in resolving the issues on appeal, we decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
