v.

Laron Terrell Cobb, Appellant.


Appeal From Williamsburg County
Clifton Newman, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-267
Submitted March 1, 2005 – Filed April 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, of Columbia for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry D. McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliot, all of Columbia; and Solicitor C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Laron Terrell Cobb appeals from his conviction for criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature arguing the trial judge abused his discretion in admitting prejudicial photos of the victim without the proper foundation.  Cobb’s counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating 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] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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