APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, 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; and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Joyner appeals from his guilty plea to assault and battery with intent to kill and possession of a stolen motor vehicle, arguing the plea did not comply with the mandates of Boykin v.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss Joyner’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.
