PER CURIAM: In July
2003, Anthony Ryan Henderson, pled guilty to several charges, including
malicious injury to personal property of less than $1,000. Henderson’s appellate counsel filed an Anders
brief, attaching to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel stating that
she had reviewed the record and concluded the appeal lacked merit. This
court denied the petition to be relieved and ordered the parties to brief the
issue of whether the plea court had subject matter jurisdiction to accept
appellant’s guilty plea to malicious injury to personal property less than
$1,000. We now affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR and the following
authorities: State v. Gentry, 363 S.C. 93, 102 n.6, 610 S.E.2d 494,
499 n.6 (2005) (“[A] presentment of an indictment or a waiver of presentment
is not needed to confer subject matter jurisdiction on the circuit court. . .
. A defendant must object if he is not presented with the indictment or if
he has not waived his right to presentment. If the defendant does not
object, he is deemed to have waived the right to presentment.”); State v.
Smalls, ___ S.C. ___, ___, 613 S.E.2d 754, 756 (2005) (holding that “signing
a sentencing sheet for a charge to which a defendant has pled guilty constitutes
a written waiver of presentment.”).
