PER CURIAM: Appellant, Phillip M. Gilliard, was indicted for and convicted of burglary in the first degree. The trial judge sentenced Gilliard to twenty-four years in prison. Gilliard’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit. Gilliard did not file a separate pro se brief. We dismiss pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991). Counsel’s petition to be relieved is granted.1
ANDERSON, HUFF, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.
1 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
