The State, Respondent,

v.

Kelvin Creech, Appellant.


Appeal From Barnwell County
James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-612
Submitted December 1, 2004 – Filed December 7, 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, all of Columbia;   and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  In May 2003, Kelvin Creech was tried and found guilty of failure to stop for a blue light.  He was sentenced to two years imprisonment.  Creech appeals, arguing the trial court erred by allowing the State to present inadmissible prejudicial character evidence against him.  On appeal, counsel for Creech has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), asserting that there are no meritorious grounds for appeal and requesting permission to withdraw from further representation.  Creech has not filed a pro se response. 

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

ANDERSON, STILWELL, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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