v.

Travis Evans, Appellant.


Appeal From Laurens County
 Wyatt T. Saunders, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-464
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 8, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, 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: Travis Evans was convicted of distributing powder cocaine and received a suspended sentence with two years of probation.  Evans’ probation was revoked after he was found in the possession of a handgun with two convicted felons.  Evans appeals, arguing the circuit court erred in failing to inquire into his knowledge of the criminal records of the men with whom he associated, the circumstances surrounding his association with them, or the extent of their relationship.  Evans did not file a separate 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[1] Evans’ 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.
