APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Lanelle Cantey Durant, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Assistant Chief Legal Counsel J. Benjamin Aplin, South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole & Pardon Services, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Michael Anthony Farrow appeals the trial court's decision to toll his probation while he was committed to the custody of the Department of Mental Health pursuant to the Sexually Violent Predator Act,[1] arguing that the trial court erred by tolling his probation without conducting a full evidentiary hearing.  After thoroughly reviewing the record and briefs 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 Farrow's appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.[2] 

APPEAL DISMISSED.
