In The Court of Appeals

The State,        Respondent,

v.

Jimmie Alpheus Wilson,        Appellant.


Appeal From Florence County
B. Hicks Harwell, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-087
Submitted December 23, 2003 – Filed February 12, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia, and Solicitor Edgar Lewis Clements, III,  of Florence, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Jimmie A. Wilson appeals his convictions for armed robbery.  Wilson’s appellate counsel has petitioned to be relieved as counsel, stating she has reviewed the record and has concluded Wilson’s appeal is without merit.  The issue briefed by counsel concerns whether Wilson’s guilty plea failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama. [1]   Wilson has not filed any documents on his own behalf.

After a review of the record as required by Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we hold there are no directly appealable issues that are arguable on their merits.  Accordingly, we dismiss Wilson’s appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved. [2]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


[1]   395 U.S. 238 (1969).

[2]   Because oral argument would not aid the court in resolving the issues on appeal, we decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rules 215 and 220(b)(2), SCACR.
