Appeal From York County
John C. Hayes, III, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No.
Submitted December 1, 2004 – Filed December 10, 2004
Acting Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda P. Hagler, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services, of Columbia, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Michael Ronan appeals the revocation of his probation for unlawful use of the telephone. Ronan’s appellate counsel has petitioned to be relieved as counsel, stating she has reviewed the record and has concluded Ronan’s appeal is without merit. The sole issue briefed by counsel concerns whether the circuit court erred in revoking Ronan’s probation for failure to pay fines owed without making an explicit finding that Ronan did so willfully. Ronan did not file a separate pro se reply brief.
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 this appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.1
HUFF, KITTREDGE, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.
1We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rules 215 and 220(b)(2), SCACR.
