v.

Appeal From Richland County
 G. Thomas Cooper, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-189
Submitted March 1, 2005 – Filed March 14, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Attorney General Henry D. McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Altore Randolph appeals after pleading guilty to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and robbery.  Randolph argues that he did not receive effective assistance of counsel.  His counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he reviewed the record and concluded Randolph’s appeal was without merit.  Randolph filed a pro se response. 

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) 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]

GOOLSBY, HUFF, and STILWELL, JJ., concur.


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