Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-463   
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 11, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda H. Carter, 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, Warren Blair Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Pressley was convicted of failure to return a rented motor vehicle valued over $1000.00 but less than $5000.00.  The trial court sentenced him to imprisonment for a period of three years, suspended on probation for a period of three years and one hundred hours of public service.  Pressley’ 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.  Pressley did not file a separate pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1969), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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