v.

Larry Wayne Franklin, Appellant.


Appeal From Greenville County
Larry R. Patterson, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-140
Submitted March 1, 2006 – Filed March 9, 2006


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole & Pardon Services, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Larry Wayne Franklin appeals his probation revocation of one year on a conviction for criminal sexual conduct in the second degree in which he received three years imprisonment and two years community supervision.  Franklin maintains the trial court erred because it revoked his probation solely for his inability to pay without determining on the record that he did not make a bona fide effort to pay, as required by Barlet v. State, 288 S.C. 481, 483, 343 S.E.2d 620, 622 (1986). On appeal, counsel for Franklin has filed a final brief along with a petition to be relieved as counsel.  Franklin filed a pro se response.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Franklin’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[1] Franklin’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.         

APPEAL DISMISSED.
