Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-206
Submitted April 2, 2007 – Filed May 9, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, 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 Donald J. Zelenka, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor David Michael Pascoe, Jr., of Orangeburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Jason Cook appeals his guilty plea to murder and sentence to thirty years in prison pursuant to a negotiated plea.  His counsel contends the plea failed to comply with the mandates of Boykin v.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss Cook’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.[1]

HUFF, BEATTY, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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