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 Douglas A. Barfield, of Lancaster, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Joseph N. Clinton appeals his convictions of possession with intent to distribute crack-cocaine and distribution of crack-cocaine, and concurrent sentences of eight years for each conviction.  Clinton argues the trial court erred by admitting drug analysis reports 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 Clinton’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

ANDERSON, HUFF, and THOMAS, JJ., concur.


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