v.

Rodney Tremaine Hinton, Appellant.


Appeal From York County
 Larry R. Patterson, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-445
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 6, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

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

PER CURIAM: Rodney Tremaine Hinton was convicted of distribution of crack cocaine.  Hinton’s participation in a community supervision program was terminated for (1) failure to follow his supervising agent’s instructions and advice, (2) failure to abide by the conditions of the electronic monitoring program by leaving his residence without permission on four occasions, (3) failure to maintain stable employment, and (4) failure to pay supervision fees as ordered.  Hinton appeals, arguing the circuit court erred in revoking his community supervision without the benefit of a preliminary hearing.  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[1] Hinton’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. 

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.
