APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda P. Hagler, of Columbia, 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 Edgar L. Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  William Carson Hopkins, Jr. pled guilty to resisting arrest, possession of a stolen vehicle, and failure to stop for a blue light, second offense.  He was sentenced to one year for resisting arrest, five years for possession of a stolen vehicle, and five years for failure to stop, to be served concurrently.  Hopkins’s appellate counsel filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967).  Counsel additionally submitted a petition to be relieved from representation, asserting there are no directly appealable issues of arguable merit.  Hopkins did not file a pro se response with the Court.

After a 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. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, STILWELL, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
