The State, Respondent,

v.

Harold Jamar Wilson, Appellant.


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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-588
Submitted December 1, 2009 – Filed December 14, 2009   


AFFIRMED


Acting Chief Appellate Attorney Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka all of Columbia; and Solicitor C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Harold Jamar Wilson was convicted of murder, assault and battery with intent to kill (ABIK), attempted armed robbery, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime.  The trial court sentenced Wilson to life on the murder charge and imposed a consecutive sentence of twenty years for ABIK, twenty years for armed robbery to run consecutive to the murder charge and concurrent to the ABIK charge, and five years on the firearm possession charge to run consecutive to the other three charges.  Wilson appeals, contending the trial court erred in allowing his juvenile record to be published to the jury without first receiving an order from the family court judge to obtain the record.  

We affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR and the following authorities:  S.C. Code Ann. § 20-7-8515(D) (Supp. 2004) (“Law enforcement information or records of children created pursuant to the provisions of this article may be shared among . . . solicitors’ offices . . . for criminal justice purposes without a court order.”) (emphasis added); S.C. Code Ann. § 20-7-8510(G) (Supp. 2004) (“The department or the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, or both, must provide to . . . a solicitor . . . upon request, a copy of a child offense history for criminal justice purposes.  This information must not be disseminated except as authorized in Section 20-7-8515.”);  S.C. Code Ann. § 20-7-8510(H) (“Other information retained by the department may be provided to . . . a solicitor . . . pursuant to an ongoing criminal investigation or prosecution.”); and Rule 609(d), SCRE, (“Evidence of a juvenile adjudication is admissible under this rule if conviction of the crime would be admissible to attack the credibility of an adult.”).[1]

AFFIRMED.
