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 Solicitor Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

 

 

PER CURIAM:  A jury found Brent Hill guilty of unlawful conduct towards a child.  Hill argues the trial judge erred in allowing the State to question a witness when the question was asked and answered and the witness demonstrated prejudice towards Hill.  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 Hill's 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.
