Appeal from Horry County
Edward B. Cottingham, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-259
Submitted May 1, 2007 – Filed May 29, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, of Columbia; and Solicitor J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Anthony Turner appeals his guilty plea to first degree burglary.  He maintains his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama because the plea court failed to adequately inform him of the constitutional rights he waived by entering a guilty plea.  395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Specifically, he claims the plea court did not inform him that he had a right to confront and cross examine witnesses against him.  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] Turner’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, HUFF, and BEATTY, JJ., concur.


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