v.

Alfred Walker, Appellant.


Appeal from Barnwell County
Perry M. Buckner, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-021
Submitted January 1, 2008 – Filed January 10, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Alfred Walker appeals his guilty pleas pursuant to Alford v. North Carolina, 400 U.S. 25 (1970), and two consecutive life sentences for two counts of murder, as well as his guilty pleas to second-degree burglary, assault and battery with intent to kill, armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime and concurrent sentences amounting to thirty years imprisonment.  Walker argues his guilty pleas were conditional, and thus, invalid.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Walker’s 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] Walker’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, SHORT AND WILLIAMS, JJ., CONCUR.
