Appeal From Administrative Law Court
 John McLeod, Administrative Law Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-458
Submitted October 1, 2010 – Filed October 21, 2010  


AFFIRMED


Lymon Edwards, pro se, for Appellant.

Christopher D. Florian, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Lymon Edwards appeals his disciplinary conviction for escape, arguing the South Carolina Department of Corrections (the Department) violated his right to due process.  Because we find the Department followed its disciplinary and grievance procedures, we affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authority: Al-Shabazz v. State, 338 S.C. 354, 373, 527 S.E.2d 742, 752 (2000) ("We hold that Department's disciplinary and grievance procedures are consistent with the [due process] standards delineated by the Supreme Court [of the United States] in [Wolff v. McDonnell, 418 U.S. 539 (1974)].").

AFFIRMED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur. 


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