Christopher Brown, Appellant.
Appeal From Aiken County
James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-527
Submitted October 1, 2004 – Filed October 18, 2004
Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott , all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Christopher Brown appeals his guilty plea to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. Counsel for Brown attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel. Brown did not file a separate pro se response.
After a review of the record as required by Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits. Accordingly, we dismiss Brown’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.
STILWELL, BEATTY, and SHORT, JJ., concur.
