v.

Paul E. Medlin,        Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
James R. Barber, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-227
Submitted January 29, 2004 – Filed March 30, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda H. Haile, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM: Paul E. Medlin appeals his convictions for first-degree burglary and assault with intent to commit first-degree criminal sexual conduct.  Medlin’s appellate counsel has petitioned to be relieved as counsel, stating she has reviewed the record and has concluded Medlin’s appeal is without merit.  The sole issue briefed by counsel contends the circuit court erred in admitting Medlin’s oral and written statements into evidence at trial.  Medlin did not file a separate pro se brief.

After review of the record 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 this appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


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