v.

Mario Hunter, Mario Hunter,


Appeal From Darlington County
Howard P. King, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-530
Submitted November 2, 2009 – Filed November 19, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Jay E. Hodge, Jr., of Cheraw, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Mario Hunter appeals his convictions for first-degree burglary and petit larceny.  Hunter's counsel argues the trial court erred in admitting Hunter's statement because it was not voluntary.  Hunter filed a pro se brief arguing the trial court erred in denying his directed verdict motion.  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. 

WILLIAMS, PIEPER, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


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