v.

Lucille Coleman, Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
 James R. Barber, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-266
Submitted March 1, 2005 – Filed April 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Teresa A. Knox, Tommy Evans, Jr., and J. Benjamin Aplin, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Lucille Coleman appeals the trial court’s revocation of her probation, arguing her due process rights were violated because no preliminary hearing was held.  Coleman’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he believes the appeal has no merit.  Coleman did not file a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief 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[1] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and KITTREDGE and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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