Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-091
Submitted February 1, 2006 – Filed February 14, 2006


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, 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 David M. Pascoe, Jr., of Summerville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Deron Hunter appeals his convictions of murder, attempted armed robbery, and first degree burglary.  Hunter claims the trial court erred by admitting his written statements in violation of Jackson v. Denno, 378 U.S. 368 (1964).  Additionally, Hunter claims the trial court erred when it accepted the in-court identification by the State’s witness in violation of State v. Brown, 33 S.C. 185, 508 S.E.2d 38 (Ct. App. 1998).  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 Hunter’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

GOOLSBY, HUFF, and STILWELL, JJ., concur.


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