APPEAL DISMISSED


Robert M. Pachakof Columbia, for Appellant.

Teresa A. Knox, Deputy Director for Legal Services, Tommy Evans Jr., and J. Benjamin Aplin, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Denard Taylor appeared before Judge Howard P. King in Sumter County for a probation revocation hearing on a probationary sentence for assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.  The balance of Taylor’s probationary sentence was revoked.  On appeal, Taylor argues his constitutional due process rights were violated because his probation was revoked without the benefit of a preliminary hearing.  Taylor did not file a pro se brief.  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.
