Appeal from Chester County
Paul E. Short, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-174
Submitted April 2, 2007 – Filed April 17, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

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 John R. Justice, of Chester, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: James Henry Culp was tried and convicted of armed robbery.  The trial court sentenced him to twenty-three years imprisonment.  On appeal, Culp argues the trial court erred by failing to charge the lesser-included offense of strong armed robbery.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Culp’s pro se brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss[1] Culp’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HUFF, BEATTY, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
