v.

William Dallis,        Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
James R. Barber, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-181
Submitted March 1, 2005 – Filed March 11, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda P. Hagler, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh,  Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: William Dallis appeals   after pleading guilty to criminal sexual conduct in the first degree, and kidnapping.  Dallis 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), Dallis’ counsel attached a petition to be relieved stating that she has reviewed the record and found the appeal to be without merit.  Dallis 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.
