Appeal From Anderson County
Alexander S. Macaulay, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-516
Submitted October 1, 2004 – Filed October 14, 2004  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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 Druanne D. White, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Raymond Brewington appeals his conviction for making a false claim to an insurance company about a proof of fire loss.  Brewington argues the trial court erred in denying his motion for a mistrial following testimony by an insurance company agent regarding the company’s request for examinations of Brewington and his wife under oath. Brewington’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  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 [1] Brewington’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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