Appeal From Greenville County
D. Garrison Hill, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-683
Submitted December 1, 2008 – Filed December 10, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, 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:  Michael Jones appeals his convictions of possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine within a half mile of a school or church.  Jones argues the trial court erred by failing to admonish the solicitor for allowing a witness to comment on Jones’ post-arrest silence.  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 Jones’ 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.
