v.

Appeal From York County
Michael G. Nettles, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-290
Submitted May 1, 2009 – Filed June 4, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


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, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Kevin S. Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Quantney A. McConnell appeals his guilty plea for burglary second degree, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, and assault and battery with intent to kill.  He argues his plea was not voluntary because the plea judge failed to advise him he would be subject to a life sentence if he was convicted for a subsequent serious offense.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel's 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., THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


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