 Steven H. John, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2007-UP-448
Submitted October 1, 2007 – Filed October 10, 2007   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kenneth G. Lawshe pled guilty to kidnapping, strong arm robbery, and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.  He received respective sentences of twenty, fifteen, and ten years.  All sentences run concurrently.  On appeal, Lawshe alleges the plea judge erred in accepting his plea without fully advising him of the constitutional rights he waived by pleading guilty.  Lawshe did not file a pro se brief.  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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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