PER CURIAM:  Bobby Rice appeals from his guilty plea to possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute, distribution of crack cocaine, and possession of marijuana.  The plea judge sentenced Rice to concurrent terms of confinement totaling fifteen years.  Rice’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.
