Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-342
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 9, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Lanelle C. Durant, Appellate Defender, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Attorney General R. Westmoreland Clarkson, and Assistant Attorney General Deborah R.J. Shupe, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  After a jury trial, Wallace Jefferies was found to be a sexually violent predator under the Sexually Violent Predator Act.  He was committed to the Department of Mental Health for long term care, control, and treatment.  On appeal, Jefferies argues the trial court erred in allowing certified copies of his convictions to be submitted as evidence when he was willing to stipulate to those convictions.  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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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