PER CURIAM: Roy Holmes appeals from his guilty plea to two counts of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, two counts of distribution of cocaine, one count of possession of ecstasy, and one count of distribution of ecstasy. He argues the circuit court should not have accepted his guilty plea because it was conditioned upon his belief that he could appeal the denial of his motion for new counsel. We affirm pursuant to Rule 220, SCACR, and the following authorities: State v. Downs, 361 S.C. 141, 604 S.E.2d 377 (2004) (accepting the appellant’s guilty plea even though, at the time of the plea, appellant was unsure whether he wanted to later present evidence that he was mentally ill at the time of his crime because appellant never attempted to reserve the right to later deny his guilt); State v. Truesdale, 278 S.C. 368, 370, 296 S.E.2d 528, 529 (1982) (explaining that guilty pleas must be unconditional); Whetsell v. State, 276 S.C. 295, 297, 277 S.E.2d 891, 892 (1981) (“The general rule is that guilty pleas freely and voluntarily entered, act as a waiver of all non-jurisdictional defects and defenses . . . .”).
HEARN, C.J. and STILWELL and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.
 We affirm this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
