v.

Dennis Garrett, Jr., Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
 James C. Williams, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-159
Submitted March 1, 2006 – Filed March 15, 2006


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, Office of Appellate Defense, 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, all of Columbia;  and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Dennis Garrett, Jr. appeals from his guilty plea to second-degree burglary. He contends the circuit court erred by accepting his plea without obtaining a waiver of his right against self-incrimination and his right to confront his accusers.  Garrett’s counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating he had reviewed the record and concluded Garrett’s appeal lacks merit.  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] Garrett’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., ANDERSON, and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


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