The State, Respondent,

v.

Jovan McRant, Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
Larry R. Patterson, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-203
Submitted April 1, 2009 – Filed May 18, 2009


AFFIRMED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Senior Assistant Attorney General Harold M. Coombs, Jr., all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Jovan McRant appeals his convictions for armed robbery, possession of a pistol under the age of twenty-one, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and fifteen year prison sentence.  McRant argues the trial court erred in failing to suppress the results of a gun shot residue test and in failing to grant a continuance.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authority: State v. Dunbar, 356 S.C. 138, 142, 587 S.E.2d 691, 694 (2003) (finding a party cannot argue a different ground for error on appeal than that argued at trial).

AFFIRMED.

Hearn, C.J., Pieper and Lockemy, JJ., concur.


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