The State, Respondent,

v.

Trevis Eugene Johnson, Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
Doyet A. Early, III, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2012-UP-244 
Submitted April 2, 2012 – Filed April 25, 2012


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia; and Trevis Eugene Johnson, pro se, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Senior Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor J. Strom Thurmond, Jr., of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Trevis Eugene Johnson appeals his conviction of trafficking in cocaine, arguing the circuit court erred in denying his motion for a directed verdict because the State failed to prove he had actual or constructive possession of the drugs.  Additionally, Johnson asserts several pro se arguments.  After a thorough review of the record and briefs 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.

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


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