Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia,for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Appellant, William Ray Andrews, pled guilty to two counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the first degree.  The trial judge sentenced him to concurrent terms of eighteen years on each charge.  Andrews’ counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Andrews did not file a separate pro se brief.
