Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-525
Submitted October 1, 2004 – Filed October 18, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Edgar Lewis Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Maurice Leif Gordon appeals his conviction for distribution of crack cocaine and distribution of crack cocaine within proximity of a school.  He argues the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to convict him due to faulty indictment and, alternatively, error in the trial court's denial of his motion for a directed verdict.  After a thorough review of the record, appellant's pro se brief, 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 Gordon’s appeal under Rule 220(b)(2), SCACR, and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

GOOLSBY, ANDERSON, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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