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, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Brandon Eugene Jones pled guilty to three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.  Jones appeals his concurrent sentences of thirty years on each charge.  Jones’ 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.  Jones filed a separate pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Jones’ pro se 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] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HUFF, KITTREDGE, and WILLIAMS JJ., concur.
