v.

Kenneth Tyrone Williams, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
James W. Johnson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-356
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 10, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM:  Kenneth Tyrone Williams pled guilty to resisting arrest, which violated his probation.  He received consecutive sentences of one year for resisting arrest and his probation was revoked for ten years.  Williams argues no evidentiary basis existed for the trial court to revoke his probation.  Williams filed a pro se brief maintaining evidence the trial court considered was unreliable and unverified.  After a thorough review of the record and both briefs 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 Williams’ 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.
