Appeal From Aiken County
 Reginald I. Lloyd, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.   2007-UP-407
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 4, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Teresa A Knox, S.C. Dept. of Probation Parole & Pardon, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Appellant, Jermaine Antonio Godard, pled guilty to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and was sentenced to five years imprisonment, suspended to three years of probation.  Following a probation revocation hearing, the court revoked four years of Godard’s suspended sentence and terminated his probation.  Godard’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Godard did not file 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.

HEARN, CJ., HUFF, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


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