v.

George Alvin Demedicis,        Appellant.


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


Unpublished Opinion No.  2004-UP-649
Submitted December 1, 2004 – Filed December 21, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda P. Hagler, 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 Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: George Alvin Demedicis appeals from his guilty plea to one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and one count of incest.  Demedicis contends the trial court erred in accepting his guilty plea without properly advising him of the sentencing consequences he faced.  Demedicis’s counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s 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] the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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