APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  William Whitfield pled guilty to four counts of criminal sexual conduct with a minor and two counts of lewd act on a child.  The trial court sentenced him to concurrent terms of imprisonment totaling twenty years.  Whitfield argues on appeal that his sentence was constitutionally disproportionate.  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] Whitfield’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., KITTREDGE, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


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