The State, Respondent,

v.

Carlos Morales Hernandez, Appellant.


Appeal From Jasper County
Perry M. Buckner, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-306
Submitted June 1, 2007 – Filed June 11, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor I. McDuffie Stone, III, of Beaufort, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Carlos Morales Hernandez appeals his guilty plea to possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.  Counsel for Hernandez attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Hernandez 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 the 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.
