The State,        Respondent,

v.

Nyikrenda Keith,        Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
William P. Keesley, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-405
Submitted June 1, 2005 – Filed June 24, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Nyikrenda Keith appeals her guilty plea for accessory after the fact of murder.  The trial judge sentenced Keith to fifteen years imprisonment.

Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), counsel for Keith attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he had reviewed the record and concluded Keith’s appeal is without legal merit sufficient to warrant a new trial.  Keith did not file a separate 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), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[1]

HEARN, C.J., BEATTY and SHORT, JJ., concur.


[1]  Because oral argument would not aid the court in resolving the issues on appeal, we decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
