v.

Kem L. Watson, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
 G. Thomas Cooper, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2006-UP-184
Submitted April 1, 2006 – File April 6, 2006   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary,  of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Kem Watson appeals his guilty plea of breach of trust with fraudulent intent.  Watson argues the trial judge failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), in accepting his 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 Watson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[1]

GOOLSBY, HUFF, and STILWELL, JJ., concur. 


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