APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM:  Keena Rivers appeals his consecutive sentences of twelve years, three years, and one year for possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, failure to stop for a blue light, and possession of marijuana, respectively.  Rivers argues the trial court erred by not allowing him to present a defense.  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.

SHORT, THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


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