Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-280
Submitted June 1, 2007 – Filed June 6, 2007   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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 Warren Blair Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Williams appeals his guilty plea to voluntary manslaughter and assault and battery with intent to kill.  He was sentenced to concurrent sentences of twenty-five years for the manslaughter and ten years for the ABWIK.  Williams maintains his guilty plea was rendered conditional as a result of the trial judge informing Williams of his right to an appeal.  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.

HEARN, C.J., KITTREDGE, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


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