v.

Jeramy Williams, Appellant.


Appeal From Allendale County
 R. Markley Dennis, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-142
Submitted March 3, 2008 – Filed March 4, 2008  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, 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; and Solicitor I. McDuffie Stone, of Hampton, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Jeramy Williams appeals his convictions for distribution of crack cocaine and distribution of crack cocaine near a park.  Williams claims the trial court erred when denying his motion for a directed verdict because the State failed to present evidence of the offenses.  William’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating he reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Williams filed a pro se brief.  In his pro se brief, Williams raises the same issue argued by his counsel.  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 William’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, SHORT and THOMAS, JJ., concur.


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