Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-537
Submitted September 2, 2008 – Filed September 17, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Robert M. Dudek, Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals, 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 Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Lewis Welsh appeals his conviction and sentence for trafficking in cocaine, arguing the circuit court erred in admitting a police officer’s testimony that Welsh had offered to sell him drugs a few days before the offense for which Welsh was charged.  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[1] Welsh’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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