The State, Respondent,

v.

Kaya C. Henderson, Appellant.


Appeal From Greenville County
Wyatt T. Saunders, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-444
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 9, 2007


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, 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 Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kaya C. Henderson appeals her guilty pleas to possession of crack cocaine and one count of forgery.  She maintains her guilty plea was not intelligent and voluntary because the judge advised her of these rights in a cursory manner, failing to convey the importance of these rights, and thus not complying with  Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  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] Henderson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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