APPEAL DISMISSED


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 Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  A jury found Tommy Swinson Adams guilty of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and committing a lewd act on a minor.  Adams argues the trial judge erred in refusing to grant his motion for a directed verdict.  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 Adams’s 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.
