v.

Clifford R. Young, Jr., Appellant.


Appeal From Lee County
Clifton Newman, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-407
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 17, 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 Solicitor C. Kelly Jackson, of Sumter, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Clifford R. Young, Jr., appeals his guilty plea to criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree.  He was sentenced to twenty years imprisonment, suspended upon active service of five years imprisonment and two years probation.  Young argues the trial court erred by accepting his guilty plea without a sufficient factual basis.  Young filed a separate pro se brief arguing the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction and his trial counsel was ineffective.  After a thorough review of the record and both briefs 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 Young’s 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.
