Unpublished Opinion No. 2005-UP-504
Submitted August 1, 2005 – Filed August 24, 2005   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Tara S. Targgart, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM:  Stacy Bing appeals his guilty plea for the offense of possession of crack cocaine, arguing the trial judge failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), in accepting the plea.  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) Bing’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating she reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.  No separate pro se brief was filed.  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 Bing’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[1]

GOOLSBY, BEATTY, and SHORT, JJ., concur.
