 Marc H. Westbrook, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-149
Submitted April 2, 2007 – Filed April 4, 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 Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Williams appeals his guilty plea to numerous charges including: first-degree burglary, kidnapping, assault and battery with intent to kill, first-degree criminal sexual conduct, and robbery, as well as his sentence of forty years in prison.  His counsel contends the plea did not meet the mandates of Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Williams’ pro se 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] Williams’ appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, KITTREDGE, and SHORT JJ., concur.


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