v.

Andre Hosea Crawford,        Appellant.


Appeal From Greenville County
Edward W. Miller, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-239
Submitted April 1, 2005 – Filed April 6, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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 Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  On January 13, 2004, Andre Crawford pled guilty to trafficking crack cocaine, 2nd; possession with intent to distribute, 2nd; possession of crack cocaine, 2nd; and distribution of crack cocaine, 2nd.  He was sentenced to concurrent sentences of 10 years imprisonment.  Crawford appeals, arguing his sentence was unlawful because the judge improperly considered an impromptu drug test.  On appeal, counsel for Crawford 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.  Crawford has not 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.
