Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-268
Submitted April 1, 2005 – Filed April 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, 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 Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Emory Jenkins pled guilty to unlawful conduct towards a child and manufacturing methamphetamine.  He was sentenced to seven years, suspended upon the service of three years, plus three years probation for each charge, to be served concurrently.  Jenkins’s appellate counsel filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967).  Counsel additionally submitted a petition to be relieved from representation, asserting there are no directly appealable issues of arguable merit.  Jenkins did not file a pro se response with the Court.

After a 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.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, BEATTY, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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