Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan,  of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:   Daniel Cook appeals from his guilty plea to criminal sexual conduct with a minor, second degree.  The plea judge sentenced him to twelve years jail time.  Cook’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating he reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Cook filed a pro se brief along with the petition.  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 Cook’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1] 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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