PER CURIAM:  Lakendrick Leverette appeals his conviction for strong armed robbery.  On appeal, Leverette argues the trial court erred by (1) abusing its discretion by imposing an unreasonable and arbitrary sentence, (2) refusing to grant Leverette's motion for directed verdict, and (3) instructing the jury on strong armed robbery as a lesser included offense of armed robbery.   After a thorough review of the record, appellant's pro se brief, 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 Leverette's appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.[1]

 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

 

WILLIAMS, PIEPER, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.
