Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-040
Submitted January 2, 2007 – Filed January 24, 2007


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 Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Randy Johnson appeals his convictions for one count of voluntary manslaughter and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident with bodily injury.  The trial judge sentenced him to twenty-four years for voluntary manslaughter and one year, consecutive for one of the leaving the scene conviction and one year, concurrent, for the other leaving the scene conviction.  Johnson alleges the trial judge erred in allowing the State to cross-examine him with three prior convictions.  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 Johnson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and KITTREDGE and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur


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