The State,        Respondent,


Riley James,        Appellant.

Appeal From Orangeburg County
Luke N. Brown, Jr., Circuit Court Judge

Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-212
Submitted January 29, 2003 - Filed March 19, 2003††


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia; for Appellant

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster; Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh; Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia; Solicitor Walter M. Bailey, Jr., of Summerville; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:† Riley James appeals his conviction for second-degree burglary, arguing that the trial court erred in ruling that defense counsel did not use racially neutral reasons in striking three jurors.† In a separately filed pro se brief, James also argues that the trial court erred in denying his motion for a directed verdict, that police officers did not have probable cause to arrest him for burglary second, and that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress blown-up photographs of the crime scene. After a thorough review of the record and counselís 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] Jamesís appeal and grant counselís motion to be relieved.


HEARN, C.J., GOOLSBY and SHULER, JJ., concur.

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