v.

Travis Brown,        Appellant.


Appeal From Charleston County
A. Victor Rawl, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-488
Submitted September 15, 2004 – Filed September 21, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, Office of Appellate Defense, 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 Ralph E. Hoisington, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Travis Ray Shelton Brown pled guilty to failing to stop for a blue light, second-degree burglary, and two counts of armed robbery.  He was sentenced to three years for failure to stop and fifteen years for armed robbery and second-degree burglary, all to run concurrent.  Brown 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 Brown 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.  Brown 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]

STILWELL, BEATTY and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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