Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-014
Submitted January 2, 2009 – Filed January 8, 2009


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia, for Petitioner.

Attorney General Henry D. McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Assistant Attorney General Dean Grigg, all of Columbia, for Respondent. 

PER CURIAM:  Petitioner seeks a writ of certiorari from the denial of his application for post-conviction relief (PCR). 

Because there is sufficient evidence to support the PCR judge’s finding that Petitioner is entitled to a belated appeal, we grant the petition for a writ of certiorari and proceed with a review of the direct appeal issue pursuant to Davis v. State, 288 S.C. 290, 342 S.E.2d 60 (1986). 

After consideration of counsel’s brief and review pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Petitioner’s direct appeal is dismissed,[1] and counsel’s motion to be relieved is granted. 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., SHORT and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


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