Appeal From Anderson County
J.C. “Buddy” Nicholson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-052
Submitted January 1, 2008 – Filed January 14, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals 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

Solicitor Christina T. Adams, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Roger Nix appeals his guilty pleas to burglary in the second degree and petit larceny, 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.  Nix 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 Nix’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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