v.

Sharon Richey,        Appellant.


Appeal From Pickens County
C. Victor Pyle, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-090
Submitted February 1, 2005 – Filed February 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda P. Hagler, 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:  On March 19, 2003, Sharon Richey pled guilty to three counts of distribution of methamphetamine and one count of possession of methamphetamine.  She was sentenced to concurrent sentences of 12 years imprisonment and ordered to pay a $25,000 fine.  Richey appeals, arguing her guilty plea did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  On appeal, counsel for Richey has filed a brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), asserting that there are no meritorious grounds for appeal and requesting permission to withdraw from further representation.  Richey 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]

ANDERSON, BEATTY, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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