v.

State of South Carolina, Respondent.


Appeal From Marlboro County
John M. Milling, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-288
Submitted April 1, 2005 – Filed April 21, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellant Defender Aileen P. Clare, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry D. McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Assistant Attorney General Christopher L. Newton, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Willie Morrison appeals the dismissal of his petition for writ of habeas corpus.  Counsel for Morrison attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Morrison did not file a separate pro se response.

After a review of the record as required by Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits.  Accordingly, we dismiss Morrison’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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