 Perry M. Buckner, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-013

Submitted January 1, 2008 – Filed January 9, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, of Columbia; Tommy Young, of Ridgeville, 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; I. McDuffie Stone, III, of Hampton; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Tommy Young appeals his convictions for armed robbery and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, arguing the trial court erred by not granting a mistrial.  In his pro se brief, Young also objects to the admission of a witness’ testimony, argues his due process rights were violated, and alleges his trial counsel was ineffective.  After a thorough review of the record, Young’s pro se brief, 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, SHORT and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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