v.

Appeal From Anderson County
 J.C. Buddy Nicholson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.   2009-UP-482
Submitted October 1, 2009 – Filed October 14, 2009


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

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

PER CURIAM: John L. Minor appeals the revocation of his probation arguing the circuit court abused its discretion by sentencing him to prison for five years, a term significantly longer than he had ever served in the past.  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. 

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


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