APPEAL DISMISSED


Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Crawford appeals his Alford plea and his sentences for assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.  On appeal, Crawford argues the plea judge erred in considering statements of the victims’ mothers during the sentencing phase of the hearing.  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] 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.
