Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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 Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Lakeisha Russell appeals her sentence for armed robbery and assault and battery with intent to kill.  On appeal, Russell argues her sentence is unconstitutionally disproportionate and constitutes cruel and unusual punishment.  Russell also asserts numerous pro se arguments.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss[1] Russell’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.
