Curtis Jerome Bradford, Appellant.


Appeal From Dillon County
 J. Michael Baxley, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-036
Submitted January 1, 2005 – Filed January 14, 2005


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 Jay E. Hodge, Jr., of Cheraw, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:   A Dillon County grand jury indicted Curtis Jerome Bradford for first-degree criminal sexual conduct and armed robbery.  The jury found Bradford guilty on both charges and the trial court sentenced him to consecutive terms of 30 years in the department of corrections.  On appeal he asserts the trial court erred by admitting prejudicial character evidence.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Bradford’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating she has reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Bradford filed a separate pro se brief, in which he raises a number of issues concerning the validity of his indictments.

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. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., GOOLSBY and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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