v.

Isiah James, Jr., Appellant.


Appeal From Sumter County
 Howard P. King, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-608
Submitted December 1, 2005 – Filed December 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, 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 Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent. 

PER CURIAM:  Isiah James, Jr. appeals his guilty plea on two counts of voluntary manslaughter each with sentences of thirty years and one count of armed robbery with a sentence of twenty-five years all to run consecutively.  James argues the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction due to a defective indictment and that Judge King erred in denying James’ motion to challenge the denial of his co-defendant’s motion for expungement.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and James’s pro se 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 James’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]


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