v.

Tommie Lee James, Appellant.


Appeal From Lancaster County
 Howard P. King, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-161
Submitted April 2, 2007 – Filed April 5, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Acting Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, South Carolina Commission on 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, all of Columbia; and Solicitor John R. Justice, of Chester, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Tommie Lee James appeals his guilty plea and sentence of three years imprisonment for receiving stolen goods valued at less than one thousand dollars.  James argues his guilty plea was conditional, and thus invalid, because the plea judge advised him of his right to appeal.  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] James’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and GOOLSBY and STILWELL, JJ., concur.


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