AFFIRMED


Appellate Defender Lanelle C. Durant, 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 Harold W. Gowdy, tof Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Darrell Eugene Roberts pled guilty to third degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.  On appeal Roberts argues the plea court erred in accepting his guilty plea without first informing Roberts he would be required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.  We affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authority:  State v. McKinney, 278 S.C. 107, 108, 292 S.E.2d 598, 599 (1982) (“Absent timely objection at a plea proceeding, the unknowing and involuntary nature of a guilty plea can only be attacked through the more appropriate channel of Post-Conviction Relief.”).

AFFIRMED. [1]

HUFF, KITTREDGE, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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