v.

Joshua Pilgrim,        Appellant.


Appeal From Pickens County
C. Victor Pyle, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-476
Submitted August 1, 2005 – Filed August 8, 2005


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM:  Joshua Pilgrim appeals his guilty plea to two counts of first-degree burglary, one count of grand larceny, and two counts of petit larceny.  Pilgrim 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 Pilgrim’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HUFF and WILLIAMS, JJ., and CURETON, A.J. concur.


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