Appeal From York County
 Clifton Newman, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2009-UP-371
Submitted June 1, 2009 – Filed June 29, 2009


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott; all of Columbia,  and Solicitor Kevin S. Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Michael James McFetridge appeals his guilty plea to impersonating a police officer.  McFetridge argues the court erred in accepting his guilty plea because there was no factual basis.  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., and THOMAS and KONDUROS, JJ. concur.


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