APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender 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, of Columbia, and Solicitor Jerry W. Peace, of Greenwood, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  William McHaney appeals his sentence of one year imprisonment, suspended upon the service of one year probation, arguing the trial judge erred in sentencing him in violation of the state constitutional mandate which provides for one's rehabilitation subsequent to receipt of a criminal conviction.  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.
