v.

Chad Odell Leonard,        Appellant.


Appeal From York County
Lee S. Alford, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2005-UP-087
Submitted February 1, 2005 – Filed February 7, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry D. McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Leonard appeals after pleading guilty to possession of marijuana second offense, possession of cocaine second offense, and possession of crack cocaine second offense.  Leonard argues his pleas were not made knowingly or voluntarily and thus, did not comply with the requirements of Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Leonard’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved stating that he has reviewed the record and found the appeal to be without merit.  Leonard did not file a separate pro se brief.

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., KITTREDGE, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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