Wanda H. Carter, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  In January 2002, Sarah Ann Kusmier pleaded guilty to making a bomb threat at her former place of employment.  She was sentenced to seven years imprisonment suspended upon the service of twelve months, followed by an eighteen-month period of probation.  Kusmier appeals and counsel for Kusmier has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), asserting that there are no meritorious grounds for appeal and requesting permission to withdraw from further representation.  Kusmier filed a pro se response. 

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), and after consideration of appellant’s pro se response we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]
