Appellate Defender Elizabeth A. Franklin-Best, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, of Columbia; and Solicitor Warren B. Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Chris Matthew Lloyd appeals from his guilty plea to three counts of second degree arson, arguing the plea judge abused his discretion by improperly considering uncharged crimes when sentencing Lloyd.

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.

HEARN, C.J., THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.
