APPEAL DISMISSED


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

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

PER CURIAM:  Vincent Noel pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.  He was sentenced to twenty years imprisonment; concurrent with a federal sentence he was already serving.  On appeal, counsel for Noel 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.  Noel 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), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[1]

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