APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster; Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; Jerry W. Peace, of Greenwood, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Appellant Timothy Jamal Steward was convicted for child abuse/ infliction of great bodily harm upon a child and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.  The trial court sentenced Steward to 20 years for child abuse and 10 years for ABHAN, with the sentences concurrent.  Steward’s 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.  Steward 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.
