Appellate Defender Elizabeth A. Franklin-Best, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Senior Assistant Attorney General Harold M. Coombs, Jr., all of Columbia; and Solicitor Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  James J. Abercrombie appeals his guilty pleas and convictions for trafficking crack cocaine over 28 grams, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, distribution of crack cocaine, and possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.  Abercrombie argues his plea was involuntary because the plea judge coerced him.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authority:  In re Arisha K.S., 331 S.C. 288, 293-94, 501 S.E.2d 128, 131 (Ct. App. 1998) (stating voluntariness of guilty plea must be raised by objection to the trial court in order to be preserved for appeal).

AFFIRMED.

Short, Williams, and Lockemy, JJ., concur.


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