Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-549

APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, 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 I. McDuffie  Stone, III, of Beaufort; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  A jury found Michael Lathan guilty of armed robbery.  Lathan argues the trial court erred in admitting a statement made to police into evidence.  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 Lathan’s 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.
