In the Interest of Christopher M., A minor under the age of seventeen, Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
 Peter R. Nuessle, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-041
Submitted January 2, 2008 – Filed January 11, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission, 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 Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Christopher M. appeals his conviction for receiving stolen goods after a family court judge found him guilty.  The judge ordered him to a determinate sentence of ninety days in the Department of Juvenile Justice with probation to continue upon his release.  Christopher M. argues the judge erred by failing to exclude a statement he made because it was not voluntary.  Christopher M.’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating she reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  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 Christopher M.’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1] 

APPEAL DISMISSED.
