Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-653
Submitted December 1, 2008 – Filed December 4, 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, Assistant Attorney General Deborah R.J. Shupe, all of Columbia; Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Christopher Alan Green appeals his guilty pleas to two counts of criminal solicitation of a minor and sentence of two concurrent ten-year sentences.  He argues the sentence violates Article 1, § 15 of the South Carolina Constitution because it is cruel and unusual.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Greene’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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., SHORT and KONDUROS, JJ., concur. 


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
