v.

Raymond Murray, Appellant.


Appeal From York County
John C. Hayes, III, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2012-UP-232 
Submitted April 2, 2012 – Filed April 18, 2012


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender LaNelle Cantey DuRant, of Columbia, and Raymond Murray, pro se, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM: Raymond Murray appeals the denial of his motion to reopen his 1987 criminal sexual conduct case because his plea was involuntary, arguing the trial court erred in denying the motion based on lack of jurisdiction.  Additionally, Murray filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and briefs 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.

PIEPER, KONDUROS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


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