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 John R. Justice, Sixth of Chester, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Christopher Aragon appeals his sentence for distribution of methamphetamine and trafficking between 10 and 28 grams of methamphetamine.  On appeal, Aragon argues his sentence is unconstitutionally disproportionate and constitutes cruel and unusual punishment.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief pursuant to Anders v.

DISMISSED.

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