The State, Respondent,

v.

Terry Larue Locke, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
G. Edward Welmaker, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-227
Submitted May 1, 2007 – Filed May 15, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant. 

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott; and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Terry Larue Locke appeals his conviction and sentence for communicating a bomb threat.  Counsel for Locke attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Locke did not file 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 Locke’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

STILWELL, SHORT, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur. 


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