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, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Octavius Livingston appeals his conviction for distribution of cocaine, third-offense. Livingston argues the trial court violated his confrontation clause rights by admitting the police officer's testimony regarding the video tape of an undercover officer's conversation with a confidential informant. After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and Livingston's pro se brief 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 the appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.
FEW, C.J., SHORT and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.
