Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-431
Submitted July 1, 2005 – Filed July 13, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda H. Carter, 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:  Michael Robert Wylie appeals his convictions and sentences for assault and battery with intent to kill and possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, two counts of kidnapping and two counts of possession of a firearm during the commission thereof, assault with intent to kill, and unlawful carrying of a pistol.  He contends he did not voluntarily enter pleas of no contest because, although he was advised of the maximum sentences, he was not informed of the minimum possible sentences.  After a thorough review of the record and of 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] Wylie’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.
