v.

Tyrone Singletary, Appellant.


Appeal From Lee County
 Thomas W. Cooper, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-506
Submitted September 2, 2008 – Filed September 5, 2008  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, 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 Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Tyrone Singletary appeals his convictions for rioting, taking a hostage, assaulting a correctional officer, carrying a weapon, and inciting a riot.  Singletary’s counsel claims the trial court erred in admitting a video depiction of the prison dormitory because it was highly inflammatory and its probative value was outweighed by its prejudicial value.  Singletary also filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Singletary’s pro se 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 Singletary’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, WILLIAMS, and KONDUROS, JJ.,

concur.


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