Lamick Kareem Edwards, Appellant.


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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-386
Submitted September 1, 2007 – Filed September 24, 2007   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellant 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, of Columbia; Solicitor C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Lamick Kareem Edwards appeals his conviction and sentence for two counts of armed robbery.  Edwards pled guilty as charged and was sentenced to two concurrent terms of thirty years’ imprisonment.  On appeal, Edwards argues this sentence is unconstitutionally disproportionate.  We disagree.  Thirty years imprisonment is within the statutory range for armed robbery and does not run afoul of the constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.  After a thorough review of the record and briefs, 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.              

APPEAL DISMISSED.
