PER CURIAM:  Jerry Lamont Edmonds appeals from his guilty plea to unlawful carrying of a pistol, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, armed robbery, and two counts of kidnapping.  On appeal, Edmonds argues the plea judge's sentence was too harsh.  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.
