v.

Robbie Collins, Appellant.


Appeal From Lee County
 Clifton Newman, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-098
Submitted February 1, 2008 – Filed February 11, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, South Carolina Commission of Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Robbie Collins appeals his convictions and sentences for murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.  On appeal, Collins maintains the trial court abused its discretion by admitting several letters he allegedly wrote to co-defendant, Jumal Prescott, because the letters were not properly authenticated.  Collins also asserts numerous pro se arguments.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Collins’s pro se 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] Collins’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., PIEPER, J., and GOOLSBY, A.J., concur.


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