APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Deputy Director for Legal Services Teresa A. Knox, Legal Counsel Tommy Evans, Jr., Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, Assistant  Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Michael Vernon Leach appeals his convictions and concurrent sentences of thirty years and ten years for distribution of crack cocaine and distribution of crack cocaine within the proximity of a public playground or park, respectively.  Leach argues the trial court admitted his oral statement in violation of Jackson v. Denno, 378 U.S. 368 (1964).  Also, Leach has filed a pro se brief in which he asserts sixteen additional arguments.  After a thorough review of the record, of 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), and of Leach’s pro se brief, we dismiss[1] Leach’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and HUFF and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


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