v.

Jerome Bernard Brown, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
Judge Carmen T. Mullen, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-468
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 8, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

J. Benjamin Aplin, Legal Counsel, South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardon Services, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Jerome Bernard Brown appeals the revocation of his probation.  Brown argues the probation judge erred in revoking his probation without making the requisite inquiry into the reasons he failed to pay supervision fees, restitution, and fines.  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.
