The State, Respondent,

v.

Issac Billie, Appellant.


Appeal from Clarendon County
 J. Derham Cole, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-359
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 10, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Joseph L. Savitz, III, Chief Attorney, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of the Office of the Attorney General, of Columbia; and Solicitor C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Issac Billie pled guilty to leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, and he was sentenced to eight years imprisonment. On appeal, Billie argues the judge erred by accepting his plea because the State failed to establish sufficient factual basis for his plea.  Billie did not file a pro se brief.  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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

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.
