Appeal From Berkeley County
R. Markley Dennis, Jr., Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-489
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 15, 2008
Appellate Defender LaNelle C. DuRant, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor I. McDuffie Stone, III, of Beaufort, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: James Ayre pled guilty to one count of criminal sexual conduct with a minor first degree and one count of sexual exploitation of a minor second degree, pursuant to Alford v. North Carolina, 400 U.S. 25 (1970). Ayre contends the plea judge erred by not informing him criminal sexual conduct with a minor first degree is a most serious offense and a strike, and therefore, his plea was not voluntarily and intelligently entered. In his pro se brief Ayres argues: (1) the trial court erred by not dismissing the charges against him in light of the Interstate Agreement on Detainers violation; (2) the lack of his appearance, or that of counsel, at the grand jury violated due process; (3) his plea was constitutionally deficient because it was not knowingly or voluntarily made; and (4) he received ineffective assistance of counsel. After a thorough review of the record 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.
KONDUROS, J., CURETON, and GOOLSBY, A.J.J., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
