C. Victor Pyle, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-097
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed February 4, 2010  


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, all of Columbia; Solicitor Robert M. Ariall, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Noah D. Chappell appeals his convictions and sentences for possession of a pistol by a person convicted of a violent crime, possession or use of body armor by a violent offender, and the unlawful carrying of a pistol. Chappell argues the trial court erred in ending jury selection and beginning empanelling a new jury due to strikes made in violation of Batson v. Kentucky, 476 U.S. 79 (1989).  Chappell filed a separate pro se brief arguing the trial court erred in denying his motion for a directed verdict.  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.

WILLIAMS, PIEPER, and Lockemy, JJ., concur.


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