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

PER CURIAM:  Appellant, George Wesley Johnson, pled guilty to committing a lewd act on a child.  The trial judge sentenced him to fifteen years, suspended upon the service of six years with five years probation.  Johnson’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that he had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Johnson did not file a separate pro se brief.  We dismiss[1] 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.

APPEAL DISMISSED.
