v.

Richard Singleton, Appellant.


Appeal From Horry County
Steven H. John, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-467
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 8, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, 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 J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Richard Singleton was convicted of one count of possession of crack cocaine and sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment.  Singleton appeals his conviction, arguing the circuit court erred in sentencing him under a law that was no longer in effect.  Singleton’s counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), stating she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacked 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[1] Singleton’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

KONDUROS, J., CURETON, A.J., and GOOLSBY, A.J., concur.


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