Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-470
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 8, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Wanda H. Carter, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM: Laird Collins was convicted of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature and received a suspended sentence with three years of probation.  Collins’ probation was revoked after he was arrested for aggravated assault.  Collins appeals, arguing the circuit court improperly sentenced him based on inaccurate information about his sentence.  Collins 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] Collins’ 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.
