v.

Lisa Ann Blakeney, Appellant.


Appeal From York County
 John C. Hayes, III, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2011-UP-043
Submitted January 1, 2011 – Filed February 2, 2011


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Kevin Scott Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Lisa Ann Blakeney appeals her convictions for possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, and failure to stop for a blue light.  On appeal, Blakeney argues the trial court's jury charge on reasonable doubt was erroneous and confused the jury, and it lessened the State's burden of proof.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and Blakeney'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[1] the appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HUFF and LOCKEMY, JJ., and GOOLSBY, A.J., concur.


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