APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, 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 Mills Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Seth Aaron Stearns was convicted of trafficking in methamphetamine by conspiracy in an amount over 400 grams.  Stearns appeals arguing the trial court erred in charging the jury that the testimony of an accomplice need not be corroborated.  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 Stearn'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.
