James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-122
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed February 11, 2010  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Katherine 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; Solicitor Scarlett Anne Wilson, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Oliver Hicks appeals his guilty pleas for attempted armed robbery and accessory after the fact of a felony, arguing the trial court erred in refusing to consider his cooperation with the State in testifying against his co-defendant when imposing his sentence after his plea. 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 Hicks's appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

WILLIAMS, PIEPER, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


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