THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA
In The Court of Appeals
The State, Respondent,
Terrance T. Alston, Appellant.
Appeal From Horry County
Paula H. Thomas, Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-054
Submitted January 2, 2009 – Filed January 15, 2009
Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Senior Assistant Attorney General Harold M. Coombs, Jr., all of Columbia; and Solicitor J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.
Terrance T. Alston appeals his convictions of second degree lynching, armed
robbery, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, and possession of
a firearm during the commission of a violent crime. Alston argues the trial
court erred by denying him the right to make the final argument. We affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR,
and the following authorities: State
v. Dunbar, 356 S.C. 138, 142, 587
S.E.2d 691, 693-694 (2003) (“In order for an issue to be preserved for
appellate review, it must have been raised to and ruled upon by the trial
judge. Issues not raised and ruled upon in the trial court will not be
considered on appeal.”); State v. Rice, 375 S.C. 302, 323, 652 S.E.2d
409, 419 (Ct. App. 2007) (“In order to preserve for review an alleged error,
the objection should be sufficiently specific to bring into focus the precise
nature of the alleged error so it can be reasonably understood by the court.”).
HEARN, C.J., SHORT and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
