Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-464

APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Elizabeth A. Franklin-Best, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren B. Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Andrew Leonter Reid appeals his sentence for trafficking in marijuana over ten pounds but less than one hundred pounds, arguing the trial court abused its discretion by sentencing Reid to a longer term of incarceration than was received by his co-defendants.  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 the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

Huff, Thomas, and Pieper, JJ., concur.


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