v.

Thomas Earl Clark,        Appellant.


Appeal From Florence County
Kenneth G. Goode, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-408
Submitted June 6, 2005 – Filed June 24, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant. 

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Edgar Lewis Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Thomas Earl Clark appeals his guilty plea to second-degree burglary, criminal sexual conduct, and exposing others to HIV.  Counsel for Clark attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Clark filed a separate pro se response brief.

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 Clark’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, STILWELL, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.
