Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-430
Submitted July 1, 2005 – Filed July 13, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Richard Allen Patterson appeals his conviction and sentence of twenty years imprisonment for first-degree burglary.  He asserts the trial judge erred by informing him of his right to appeal his conviction and sentence.  Patterson maintains his guilty plea was conditional, and thus invalid.  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[1] Patterson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J. and BEATTY and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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