 Henry F. Floyd, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-447
Submitted July 7, 2004 – Filed August 25, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, Office of Appellate Defense, 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 Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.


PER CURIAM:  Jeremiah Douglas, Jr., appeals his conviction for unlawful possession of a pistol and possession of a controlled substance.  Douglas argues his sentence of 90 days imprisonment, $250 fine, and two years of probation is so disproportionate to the offense it amounts to unconstitutional cruel and unusual punishment.  After a thorough review of the record 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 Douglas’s appeal under Rule 220(b)(2), SCACR and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., HUFF and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


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