Appeal From Darlington County
Ralph King Anderson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2012-UP-201
Submitted March 1, 2012 – Filed March 21, 2012   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, 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 William B. Rogers, Jr., of Bennettsville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Shenard Abraham appeals his conviction for assault and battery with intent to kill, arguing the trial court erred in denying his motion for a directed verdict.  Specifically, Abraham contends he acted in self-defense as a matter of law.  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[1] the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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