v.

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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2011-UP-216 
Submitted May 1, 2011 – Filed May 17, 2011


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender LaNelle C. DuRant, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM: Nathan Geremy Blackburn appeals his convictions for first-degree burglary and financial transaction card theft.  On appeal, Blackburn argues the trial court erred in admitting Blackburn's confession to  the crimes.  Specifically, Blackburn contends because the confession was taken out of context, it was confusing to the jury. Blackburn submitted a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and Blackburn'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 motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

FEW, C.J., HUFF and THOMAS, JJ., concur.


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