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; Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Leroy Folkes appeals his guilty plea for attempted armed robbery for which he received a sentence of twenty years.  He argues the trial judge abused his discretion in imposing the maximum sentence.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Folkes’ 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

KONDUROS, J., CURETON, A.J., and GOOLSBY, A.J., concur.
