APPEAL DISMISSED


Lena Younts Meredith, of Greenwood, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Assistant Attorney General Ashley Anne McMahan, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Glenn Shepherd appeals the dismissal of his petition for a writ of habeas corpus alleging the circuit court erred in dismissing his petition because trial counsel's ineffective assistance denied him fundamental fairness shocking to the universal sense of justice.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and Shepherd'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 motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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