Assistant Appellate Defender Tara Taggart, 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 Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Anthony Collins appeals his conviction and sentence for assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and resisting arrest. Counsel for Collins attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Collins filed 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
