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. Elliot, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Jabbar Jomo Straws appeals his convictions for armed robbery, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of assault and battery with the intent to kill, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.  On appeal, his counsel argues the trial court erred by denying his directed verdict motion.  Straws also filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and Straws' pro se 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 the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

HEARN, C.J., and KONDUROS and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


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