v.

Joseph Stevenson, Appellant.


Appeal From Anderson County
 J. Cordell Maddox, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-129
Submitted March 2, 2009 – Filed March 5, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Assistant Chief Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Joseph Ali Stevenson pled guilty to four counts of forgery of less than $5,000 and one count each of petit larceny of less than $1,000 and breaking into a motor vehicle.  He received concurrent sentences totaling ten years’ imprisonment, suspended upon service of three years, with five years’ probation.  Stevenson was arrested for violating the terms of his probation, and the probation court revoked five years of his probation.  Stevenson appeals, arguing the probation court erred in revoking his probation without proof of the alleged violations.  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[1] Stevenson’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

Short, Thomas, and Geathers, jj., concur.


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