PER CURIAM: Troy Lavern Pearson pled guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter. Pearson appeals his sentence of thirty years. Pearson's counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that he had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit. Pearson did file a pro se brief.
After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and Pearson's pro se 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 petition to be relieved.
HUFF, A.C.J., GEATHERS, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
