PER CURIAM: Lawrence Barron appeals the post-conviction relief (PCR) court's dismissal of his petition for a writ of habeas corpus, arguing a writ of habeas corpus is not subject to the procedural requirements of a PCR application.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authority: Keeler v. Mauney, 330 S.C. 568, 571, 500 S.E.2d 123, 124 (Ct. App. 1998) ("A person is procedurally barred from petitioning the circuit court for a writ of habeas corpus where the matter alleged is one which could have been raised in a PCR application.").

Affirmed.

HUFF, THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur. 


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