 J. Mark Hayes, II, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2007-UP-323
Submitted June 1, 2007 – Filed June 15, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, South Carolina Commission, 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 Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Frankie Dover appeals his sentence of twenty years imprisonment, suspended upon the service of ten years and three years probation for criminal sexual conduct in the second degree with a minor. Dover’s counsel argues Dover’s guilty plea did not comply with Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Dover’s counsel attached a petition to be relieved stating he has reviewed the record and found the appeal to be without merit.  Dover filed a pro se brief and alleges numerous grounds for relief. We dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1] 

STILWELL, SHORT, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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