v.

Anthony Woods, Appellant.


Appeal From Clarendon County
 Howard P. King, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-536
Submitted September 2, 2008 – Filed September 16, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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 C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Anthony Woods was convicted of (1) burglary in the first degree, (2) assault and battery with the intent to kill, and (3) criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.  He received consecutive sentences of life in prison, twenty-years, and thirty-years, respectively.  Woods appeals his convictions, arguing the trial court erred by failing to suppress physical evidence sized from his residence.  In his pro se brief, Woods also argues the trial court erred by denying defense counsel’s motion for a mistrial.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Woods’ 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[1] Woods’ 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.
