Appeal From Richland County
Deborah Neese, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-547
Submitted December 1, 2010 – Filed December 16, 2010 


AFFIRMED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, 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 B. Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Joelle T. appeals her adjudication of delinquency for disturbing schools, arguing the family court judge erred in denying her motion for a directed verdict.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authorities: S.C. Code Ann. § 16-17-420(1)(a) (2003) ("It shall be unlawful . . . for any person willfully or unnecessarily . . . to interfere with or to disturb in any way . . . the students or teachers of any school . . . ."); In the Interest of Bruce O., 311 S.C. 514, 515, 429 S.E.2d 858, 859 (Ct. App. 1993) (reviewing the denial of a directed verdict motion for acquittal on a delinquency adjudication, an appellate court must affirm if any evidence reasonably tends to prove the guilt of the accused). 

AFFIRMED.

HUFF, KONDUROS, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


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