v.

Tashon Sampson, Appellant.


Appeal From Williamsburg County
 Paula H. Thomas, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-524
Submitted September 2, 2008 – Filed September 9, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  A jury found Tashon Sampson guilty of murder, attempted armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.  Sampson argues the trial court erred in allowing the State to amend its indictment after it had rested its case to state the offense took place on February 18, 2003, when the original indictment indicated the crimes occurred on February 17, 2003.  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 Sampson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1] 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and HUFF and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


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