v.

Tiffany Jawanna Jeffcoat, Appellant.


Appeal from Richland County
L. Casey Manning, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-029
Submitted January 2, 2007 – Filed January 17, 2007   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, 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 J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Tiffany Jeffcoat appeals her guilty plea to homicide by child abuse.  She maintains her guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama because the trial court failed to adequately inform her of the constitutional rights she waived by entering a guilty plea.  395 U.S. 238 (1969).  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] Jeffcoat’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

GOOLSBY, STILWELL, and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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