v.

Appeal From Edgefield County
 Jackson V. Gregory, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-035
Submitted January 1, 2008 – Filed January 11, 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. Zalenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers,  of Lexington,  for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Willie S. Merriweather appeals his guilty plea to second-degree burglary and sentence of nine years imprisonment.  Merriweather argues his guilty plea was conditional, and thus, invalid.  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] Merriweather’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, SHORT and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.


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