v.

Brian Jacob Terrell, Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
J. C. Buddy Nicholson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-180
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed March 1, 2010


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, 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; Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Brian Jacob Terrell appeals his convictions and sentences on five charges of lewd act on a child and two counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, arguing his guilty pleas were not given voluntarily and therefore should not have been accepted by the trial judge.  Terrell's counsel attached a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacked merit.  After a 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[1] Terrell's appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


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