PER CURIAM: Christopher W. Pyatt appeals his guilty plea and sentence for possession of cocaine third offense, arguing his plea was not voluntary because the plea judge failed to advise Pyatt of the maximum penalty he faced.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.
HEARN, C.J., THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ.,
