ON WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE COURT OF APPEALS
Appeal From York County
John C. Hayes, III, Circuit Court Judge
Memorandum Opinion No. 2005-MO-003
Heard January 5, 2005 – Filed January 24, 2005
DISMISSED AS IMPROVIDENTLY GRANTED
Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of the Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Petitioner.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Senior Assistant Attorney General Norman Mark Rapoport, all of Columbia, and Solicitor Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: We granted certiorari to consider the decision of the court of appeals in State v. Hoyt Morris, Op. No. 2003-UP-144 (S.C. Ct. App. Filed January 19, 2003). After review of the appendix and briefs, we find that post conviction relief is petitioner’s proper avenue to pursue relief, if any, and therefore dismiss the writ as improvidently granted.
