Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, of Columbia, John Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Appellant, James C. McKee, Jr., pled guilty to trafficking methamphetamines, second offense, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, second offense, and possession of a stolen vehicle.  The trial judge sentenced him to concurrent sentences of ten years for trafficking methamphetamines, ten years for possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and five years for possession of a stolen vehicle.  McKee’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.  McKee 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, C.J., HUFF, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


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