Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-367

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, Office of the Attorney General, of Columbia; and Solicitor Ralph E. Hoisington, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Robert Ellis appeals from his Alford plea, arguing that the trial judge erred in failing to adequately advise him of his constitutional rights as required by Boykin.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss Ellis’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and HUFF and KITTREDGE, JJ., concur.


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