PER CURIAM:  Appellant, James T. Williams, was indicted for and convicted of the possession with intent to distribute heroin, possession with intent to distribute heroin within one-half mile of a school, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine within one-half mile of a school, and possession of cocaine.  The trial judge sentenced Williams to fifteen years for PWID heroin, five years concurrent for PWID heroin within one-half mile of a school, three years consecutive for PWID crack cocaine, ten years concurrent for PWID crack cocaine within one-half mile of a school, and five years concurrent for possession of cocaine.  Williams’ 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.  Williams filed 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.
