PER CURIAM:  Derrick Woods was convicted of possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, second offense, possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute within proximity of a public park, and resisting arrest.  He was sentenced to twenty-five years for possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, second offense, fifteen years, concurrent, for possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute within proximity of a public park, and ten years, consecutive, for resisting arrest.  Woods’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.  Woods filed 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.
