v.

Daniel Shannon, Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
 William P. Keesley, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-115
Submitted February 1, 2008 – Filed February 13, 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, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Daniel Shannon appeals his guilty pleas to murder, armed robbery, and second-degree arson.  On appeal, Shannon maintains his guilty pleas failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), because the plea court failed to advise him of his right to remain silent.  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] Shannon’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, SHORT, and THOMAS, JJ., concur.


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