Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-415
Submitted April 21, 2004 - Filed June 25, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Assistant Appellate Defender Wanda P. Hagler, 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 John R. Justice, of Chester, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Roger Alan Beck pled guilty to criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, malicious injury to real property greater than $5,000.00, second-degree arson, and use of vehicle without permission.  He was sentenced to concurrent sentences of 10 years for criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature, five years for malicious injury to property, 23 years for second-degree arson, and one year for use of a vehicle without permission.  Beck appeals, arguing his guilty plea did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  On appeal, counsel for Beck has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), asserting that there were no meritorious grounds for appeal and requesting permission to withdraw from further representation.  Beck has not filed a pro se response. 

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

GOOLSBY, HOWARD, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


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