Albert Earl Taylor, of Columbia, 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, Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Albert Earl Taylor  was indicted for first offense possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.  He pled guilty to the charge.  The trial court sentenced him to imprisonment for three years, suspended on time served and probation for time served.  Taylor’s counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel stating he had reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacked merit.  Taylor did not file a pro se response.  We dismiss pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991).  Counsel’s petition to be relieved is granted.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., AND HUFF and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
