Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-126

AFFIRMED


Appellate Defender Kathrine 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 Julie M. Thames, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Charles M. Cook appeals his guilty plea to accessory after the fact, arguing the plea judge erred in accepting his guilty plea because there was no factual basis for the plea.

McKinney, 278 S.C. 107, 108, 292 S.E.2d 598, 599 (1982) (stating that absent timely objection at a plea proceeding, the sufficiency of a guilty plea can be attacked only through the more appropriate channel of post-conviction relief).

AFFIRMED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


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