Appeal From York County
 J. Mark Hayes, II, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-408
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 18, 2008  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, South Carolina Commission, 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 Kevin Scott Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Eric Crawford appeals his guilty plea and sentence, arguing his sentence is unconstitutionally disproportionate.  Crawford also filed a pro se brief, in which he argues he did not understand some questions asked by the trial judge during the guilty plea hearing.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Crawford’s pro se 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] Crawford’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.
