v.

Ogbona Moren,        Appellant,


Appeal From Anderson County
Alexander S. Macaulay, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-509
Submitted October 1, 2004 – Filed October 13, 2004


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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 Horold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Ogbona Moren appeals from his guilty pleas to malicious injury to personal property, indecent exposure, leaving the scene of an accident, habitual traffic offender, obtaining property by false pretenses, and malicious injury to personal property greater than five thousand dollars.  Moren argues his pleas were not knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently given because he stated he could not remember the facts forming the basis of the charges.  Moren’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  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] Moren’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.
