The State, Respondent,

v.

Marvin Meek, Appellant.


Appeal from Orangeburg County
 James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-553
Submitted October 1, 2008 – Filed October 9, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy 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 Salley W. Elliott, of Columbia; and Solicitor David M. Pascoe, Jr., of Summerville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Meek was convicted of carjacking and armed robbery.  On appeal, Meek argues the court erred by allowing an in-court identification without first holding a hearing on the reliability of the identification.  Additionally, Meek filed a pro se brief maintaining the court erred in admitting a videotaped confession, arguing the statement was involuntary.  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.

SHORT, THOMAS, and PIEPER, JJ., concur.


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