Appeal From Sumter County
 F.P. Segars-Andrews, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-345
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 9, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Katherine H. Hudgins, 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, and  C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Deon R. pled guilty to first degree burglary and was sentenced to ninety days, to be released into alternative placement provided by the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ).  Deon R. appeals his sentence, arguing the family court erred in failing to explain the refusal to follow the DJJ’s recommendation of a suspended commitment.  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] Deon R.’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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