v.

Laquan D. Collier, Appellant.


Appeal from York County
 Steven H. John, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-531
Submitted September 2, 2008 – Filed September 11, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Kevin Scott Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Collier was convicted of murder, attempted armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.  On appeal, Collier argues the judge erred by admitting evidence of a robbery that took place the day after the charged incident.  Collier filed a pro se brief, which raised the same argument.  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.

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


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