Appeal From Anderson County
Roger L. Couch , Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-026
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed January 25, 2010   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, South Carolina Commission of Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

John Benjamin Aplin, S.C. Dept. of Probation Parole & Pardon, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  In October, 2001, Ronald K. Beusse was sentenced for a lewd act upon a child under sixteen to fifteen years suspended to 4.5 years with five years of probation.  Following a probation revocation hearing, the court revoked Beusse's suspended sentence.  Beusse's counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Beusse did not file a pro se brief. 

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] the appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED

HUFF, A.C.J., GEATHERS, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


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