v.

Larry Lorenzen,        Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-436†
Submitted April 18, 2003 Ė Filed June 25, 2003


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, Office of Appellate Defense, 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; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:† Larry Lorenzen was indicted for first degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC), second degree CSC and committing a lewd act on a child.† Lorenzen was tried and convicted of first degree CSC and second degree CSC.† He was sentenced to life without parole.† Lorenzen appeals his convictions arguing the trial court erred by excluding evidence showing the victim had accused a third party of molestation in the past.†

Counsel for Lorenzen submitted a final brief and attached a petition to be relieved stating he reviewed the record and found the appeal to be without merit.† After a review of the record, Lorenzenís pro se brief 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] Lorenzenís appeal and grant counselís motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

CURETON, ANDERSON and HUFF, JJ., concur.


[1] Because oral argument would not aid the court in resolving the issues on appeal, we decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
