Unpublished Opinion No.  2010-UP-490
Submitted November 1, 2010 – November 4, 2010


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliot, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Shazjuan S. Shabazz appeals his conviction for first-degree criminal sexual conduct and kidnapping.  His counsel argues the trial court erred in admitting a hearsay statement and denying his motion for a new trial.  Additionally, Shabazz filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and both briefs 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[1] the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

THOMAS, PIEPER, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur. 


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