Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-489
Submitted August 01, 2005 – Filed August 17, 2005   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, 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, of Columbia; and Solicitor Cecil Kelly Jackson of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Maurice Graves appeals his conviction for burglary in the first degree.  He maintains the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress his confession made to police shortly after he was arrested.  He also maintains he was tried and sentenced under an unconstitutional statute.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Graves’ pro se 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] Graves’ appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, HUFF, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.   


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