v.

Angela Rene Cowart, Appellant.


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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2012-UP-185
Submitted March 1, 2012 – Filed March 14, 2012   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender LaNelle Cantey DuRant, 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 S. Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Angela Rene Cowart appeals her convictions for obtaining goods under false pretense over five thousand dollars and financial transaction card fraud, arguing the trial court erred in permitting a witness to testify about forced transaction scams when he had no personal knowledge of Cowart's case and was not qualified as an expert.  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. 

PIEPER, KONDUROS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


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