Chief Attorney Joseph Savitz, III, South Carolina Commission for Indigent 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 Edgar L. Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.

DISMISSED.
