APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Lanelle C. Durant, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Asst. Deputy Atty. Gen. Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Moses Ellison appeals from his guilty plea to strong arm robbery.  The plea judge sentenced Ellison to ten years suspended to time served and two years probation which could terminate upon the completion of one hundred fifty hours of community service.  Ellison’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating she reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., CURETON and GOOLSBY, A.J.J., concur.


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