v.

Marvis Williams, Appellant.


Appeal From Hampton County
 Clifton Newman, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-451
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 10, 2007 


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and I. McDuffie Stone III, of Hampton, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: A jury convicted Marvis Williams of unlawful possession of a handgun in violation of section 16-23-20 of the South Carolina Code (2003). The trial judge sentenced him to one year imprisonment, suspended upon the service of thirty days, with one year probation.  On appeal, Williams contends the trial judge erred in allowing hearsay testimony from a police officer.  Williams did not file a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1969), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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