PER CURIAM:  Appellant, Julian Dwight Howard, was indicted for strong arm robbery and convicted of attempted strong arm robbery.  The trial judge sentenced Howard to seven years and revoked his probationary sentence.  Howard’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Howard has filed a separate pro se brief.  We dismiss pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991).  Counsel’s petition to be relieved is granted.1
