APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia for Appellant

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Atty General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Office of the Attorney General, of Columbia; and Solicitor Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Appellant, Michael Douglas Cantrell, pled guilty to distribution of cocaine.  The trial judge sentenced him to twenty years imprisonment.  Cantrell’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.  Cantrell 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.
