v.

Heyward Johnson #1, Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
 Ralph F. Cothran, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-444
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 6, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM: Heyward Johnson appeals the revocation of his probation.  Johnson argues the probation judge erred in revoking his probation in a summary fashion without providing him the opportunity to be heard, as guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment. 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.

KONDUROS, J., CURETON, A.J., and GOOLSBY, A.J., concur.


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