Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-504

APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, 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 John Gregory Hembree, of Conway; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: John S. appeals his conviction and sentence for first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, arguing the family court erred in denying his motion for a directed verdict where there was insufficient evidence of guilt.  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] John S.’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, WILLIAMS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
