v.

Adrian Johnson, Appellant.


Appeal From Orangeburg County
 John  L.  Breeden, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2005-UP-385
Submitted June 1, 2005 – Filed June 14, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

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 Robert Douglas Robbins, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Adrian Johnson appeals his guilty plea to first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal sexual conduct, armed robbery, and three counts of kidnapping. Johnson argues the trial judge erred in accepting his plea because the court failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  After a thorough review of the record and counsel’s brief 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 Johnson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, STILWELL and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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