APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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 C. Kelly Jackson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kenneth J. Edwards was convicted of shoplifting.  He received a ten year sentence, suspended upon service of two years and probation for two years.  On appeal, Edwards contends the trial judge erred in refusing to dismiss his charges after a videotape of the incident was destroyed.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), after a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief, we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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