v.

Willard Gasper,        Appellant.


Appeal From Spartanburg County
J. Derham Cole, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-409
Submitted June 1, 2005 – Filed June 27, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, 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 Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Willard Gasper appeals his guilty pleas to one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of assault and battery with intent to kill, and one count of second-degree arson.  Counsel for Gasper attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Gasper 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 Gasper’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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