Appeal from Anderson County
Barry W. Knobel, Family Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-038
Submitted January 2, 2008 – Filed January 11, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellant Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Christina T. Adams, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  April N. appeals her guilty plea to assault and battery and sentence of ninety days in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice and indefinite period of probation.  She maintains her guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama because the plea court explained her rights in a cursory manner.  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] April N.’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HUFF AND PIEPER, JJ., AND CURETON, A.J., CONCUR.


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