v.

In the Interest of:  Nathan S., a Minor under the age of Seventeen Appellant.


Appeal From York County
Barry W. Knobel, Family Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-424
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 8, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, South Carolina Commission on Indigent 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, of Columbia; and Solicitor Christina T. Adams, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Nathan S. appeals his guilty plea for possessing a weapon on school grounds.  He asserts the adjudicatory judge erred by finding he was delinquent because the State’s evidence did not establish the mens rea necessary for a violation of the statute.  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[1] Nathan’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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