APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Heyward Johnson appeals his convictions of trafficking crack cocaine and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.  Johnson claims the trial court erred when it admitted his statements in violation of Jackson v. Denno, 378 U.S. 368 (1964).  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.
