v.

Brandy Lynn Kline Pickelsimer,        Appellant.


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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-127
Submitted February 1, 2005 – Filed February 17, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Taggart, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM:  Brandy Lynn Kline Pickelsimer pled guilty to possession of crack cocaine, possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance with intent to distribute, and trafficking in cocaine.  Pickelsimer argues on appeal that her guilty plea did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Her appellate attorney attached to the final brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating she reviewed the record and concluded Pickelsimer’s appeal is without merit.  Pickelsimer did not file a pro se response. 

After a thorough review of the record 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

GOOLSBY, HUFF, and STILWELL, JJ., concur.


[1]   We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rules 215 and 220(b)(2), SCACR.
