Jeffery Allen Vaughn,        Appellant.


Appeal From Greenville County
Edward W. Miller, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2004-UP-574
Submitted November 1, 2004 – Filed November 16, 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, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Mr. Vaughn appeals after pleading guilty to criminal sexual conduct with a minor in the second degree and obtaining goods under false pretenses.  The court sentenced Vaughn to concurrent sentences of ten years on the criminal sexual conduct charge and five years for the false pretenses charge.  On appeal, Vaughn argues his guilty pleas failed to comply with the requirements set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Vaughn’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved stating that he has reviewed the record and found the appeal to be without merit.  Vaughn has also filed a pro se response in which he argues the pleas were not voluntarily made because he was not informed of their sentencing consequences.  

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]

HEARN C.J., GOOLSBY, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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