Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-263
Submitted May 1, 2007 – Filed June 1, 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, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Joseph Sumpter appeals his conviction for third-degree burglary and sentence of five years imprisonment.  On appeal Sumpter argues the trial court erred in refusing to issue a directed verdict of acquittal on the charge of third-degree burglary.  Sumpter did not file a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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