Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-248
Submitted May 1, 2007 – Filed May 22, 2007   


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

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

PER CURIAM:  Appellant, Alfonzo Bernard Richardson, pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter and first-degree burglary.  The trial judge sentenced him to concurrent terms of thirty years on each charge.  Richardson’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.  Richardson has filed a separate pro se brief.

After a thorough review of the record 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] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, HUFF, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


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