Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-285
Submitted June 1, 2007 – Filed June 7, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, 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 Warren Blair Giese, Fifth Circuit Solicitor’s Office, all of Columbia, for Respondents.

PER CURIAM:  Frederick appeals his guilty plea to first-degree burglary and first-degree criminal sexual conduct.  He was sentenced to concurrent terms of twenty-three years in prison.  Frederick maintains the trial court erred in accepting appellant’s guilty plea without ordering a mental examination.  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] Frederick’s 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.
