 Marc H. Westbrook, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-012
Submitted January 3, 2006 – Filed January 5, 2006   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, 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, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Christopher Mark Stogner appeals his conviction for robbery while armed with a deadly weapon.  The trial court sentenced Stogner to twenty-five years.  Stogner alleges the trial court erred giving an unconstitutionally coercive Allen charge.[1]  In addition, Stogner filed a pro se brief asserting fourteen separate grounds for appeal.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Stogner’s 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 Stogner’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[2]

GOOLSBY, ANDERSON, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


[1] Allen v. United States, 422 U.S. 806 (1896).

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