v.

Dean C. Grayson, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
 James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-456
Submitted July 7, 2004 – Filed August 26, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Dean C. Grayson appeals his conviction for murder arguing the trial judge failed to advise him that by entering a plea of guilty he waived his right to confront his accuser.  Grayson’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that he had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  Grayson did not file a separate pro se brief. After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief 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 [1] Grayson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., HUFF and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


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