Appeal From Cherokee County
J. Derham Cole, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2012-UP-158
Submitted February 1, 2012 – Filed March 7, 2012 


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, 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 Barry J. Barnette, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Donald Scott Jones appeals his convictions, arguing the circuit court erred in excluding evidence of the victim's propensity for anger.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel's 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 motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

WILLIAMS, THOMAS, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.

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