v.

Tyrone Shumpert,        Appellant.


Appeal From Laurens County
James W. Johnson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-095
Submitted February 1, 2005 – Filed February 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor William Townes Jones, of Greenwood, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Tyrone Shumpert appeals his convictions for armed robbery and conspiracy.  He argues the trial judge erred in denying his motion for a directed verdict.  His appellate attorney attaches a petition to be relieved as Shumpert’s counsel, stating her review of the record leads her to conclude Shumpert’s appeal lacks legal merit sufficient to warrant granting Shumpert a new trial.  Shumpert filed a pro se brief. 

After a thorough review of the record, we dismiss Shumpert’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). [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

GOOLSY, HUFF, and STILWELL, JJ. concur.


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