v.

Lawrence William Barrett, III, Appellant.


Appeal from Charleston County
 J. Derham Cole, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-516
Submitted September 2, 2008 – Filed September 9, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliot, all of the Office of the Attorney General, of Columbia; and Ralph E. Hoisington, Solicitor, Ninth Judicial Circuit, of Charleston; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Lawrence William Barrett, III, was convicted of armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.  On appeal, Barrett argues the judge erred by allowing hearsay evidence that a witness saw a vehicle later traced to Barrett fleeing the scene of the crime.  Barrett did not file a 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 the 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.
