Appeal From Clarendon County
John C. Few, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-039
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed January 26, 2010   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender M. Celia Robinson, 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 Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Lorenzo Ragin appeals his conviction for assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, arguing that the trial judge erred by ruling that prior convictions would have been admissible had Ragin testified.  In a pro se brief, Ragin raises additional arguments. After a thorough review of the record and both 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 the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.[1] 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HUFF, A.C.J., GEATHERS, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur. 


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