APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia.

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

PER CURIAM:  Matthew Barnes appeals his convictions and concurrent sentences of five years and two years for receiving stolen goods in an amount greater than $5,000.00 and for failure to stop for a blue light.  His counsel contends the trial court failed to adequately inform him of the constitutional rights he waived by entering a guilty plea. 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] Barnes’ appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, HUFF, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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