The State, Respondent,

v.

Kevin McMeans, Appellant.


Appeal From Greenwood County
 Wyatt T. Saunders, Jr, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-034
Submitted January 1, 2008 – Filed January 11, 2008  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Deputy Director for Legal Services Teresa A. Knox,   Legal Counsel Tommy Evans, Jr., and Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kevin McMeans appeals the revocation of his suspended sentence.  McMeans argues the circuit court committed an abuse of discretion by revoking his suspended sentence because the court ignored his justifiable explanations for his violations.  McMeans’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.  McMeans 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 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss[1] McMeans’ appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HUFF and PIEPER, JJ., and GOOLSBY, A.J., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
