AFFIRMED


Appellate Defender Elizabeth A. Franklin-Best, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Assistant Attorney General Julie M. Thames, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Eric G. was adjudicated delinquent by the family court.  He appeals the finding, arguing the court erred in denying his directed verdict motion and rushing the case to conclusion.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authorities:  State v. Turner, 373 S.C. 121, 126 n.1, 644 S.E.2d 693, 696 n.1 (2007) (holding in order for an issue to be preserved for review, it must have been raised to and ruled upon by the trial court); In the Interest of Bruce O., 311 S.C. 514, 515, 429 S.E.2d 858, 858 (Ct. App. 1993) ("A motion for a directed verdict should be denied when there is any evidence, direct or circumstantial, which reasonably tends to prove the guilt of the accused or from which the guilt of the accused may be fairly and logically deduced.").

AFFIRMED.

PIEPER, GEATHERS, JJ., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


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