In The Court of Appeals

The State,        Respondent,


Etta Cheatham,        Appellant.

Appeal From Aiken County
James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge

Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-177
Submitted January 10, 2003 – Filed March 4, 2003


Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda H. Haile, of Columbia; for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster; Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh; Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Etta Cheatham pled guilty to temporary use of a vehicle without permission and financial transaction card theft.  She received concurrent sentences of one year imprisonment for the vehicle charge and three years imprisonment for the theft charge.  Cheatham appeals, arguing the plea judge erred in accepting her guilty plea without adequately advising her about sentencing consequences.  Appellate counsel has filed a final brief and a petition to be relieved.  Cheatham did not file a pro se response.

After a thorough review of the record on appeal 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 grant counsel’s petition and dismiss the appeal.


HEARN, C.J., GOOLSBY, and SHULER, JJ., concur.
