Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-016
Submitted January 1, 2008 – Filed January 10, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, of Columbia; Solicitor Warren B. Geise, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Marcus Antonio Woods appeals his guilty pleas and sentence of fourteen years imprisonment for second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and resisting arrest, arguing the plea court failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), in accepting his plea. After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Woods’ pro se 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] Woods’ appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.
