Appeal From Richland County
L. Casey Manning, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-258
Submitted February 20, 2004 – Filed April 19, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Warren B. Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Travis K. Walters appeals from his guilty pleas to possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine and resisting arrest.  Walters argues his guilty pleas failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  His counsel attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he had reviewed the record and concluded Walters’ appeal was without merit.  Walters has not filed a pro se brief.

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. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


[1]   We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
