 Jackson V. Gregory, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-157
Submitted April 2, 2007 – Filed April 4, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission of Indigent 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, of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Sylvester Black appeals his convictions for accessory after the fact of armed robbery and murder, and two consecutive sentences of fifteen years imprisonment.  Black argues the plea court failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 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] Black’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, KITTREDG and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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