Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-142

APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, II, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM:  Alvin Hollingsworth appeals his guilty plea and sentence for armed robbery.  Hollingsworth contends that the judge should have allowed him to plea guilty but mentally ill, so that he could receive treatment while incarcerated pursuant to S.C. Code Ann. § 17-24-70 (2003).  This appeal is dismissed under Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, after review pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967).  Counsel’s motion to be relieved is granted.

After a thorough review of the record pursuant to Anders and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[1]

BEATTY, SHORT AND WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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