Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-091
Submitted February 1, 2005 – Filed February 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Teresa A. Knox, Tommy Evans, Jr., and J. Benjamin Aplin, South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  In October 2000 Joesherbert Thompson was sentenced to five years suspended on time served and five years probation for twelve counts of forgery and bank fraud.  On December 22, 2003, the State issued a probation citation for Thompson, alleging violations of the terms of her probation.  Thompson’s probation was revoked during a probation hearing on March 19, 2004.  Thompson appeals, arguing her violation was not willful.  On appeal, counsel for Thompson has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), asserting that there are no meritorious grounds for appeal and requesting permission to withdraw from further representation.  Thompson filed a 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]

ANDERSON, BEATTY and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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