v.

Lisa Riddle Stepp, Appellant.


Appeal From Spartanburg County
 J. Mark Hayes, II, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-155
Submitted March 3, 2008 – Filed March 11, 2008  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Aileen P. Clare, 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 Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Lisa Riddle Stepp (Stepp) appeals her guilty plea and sentence for promoting prostitution of a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  On appeal, Stepp maintains her guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Specifically, Stepp maintains the trial court erred by accepting her guilty plea without an affirmative showing her plea was intelligent and voluntary.  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 Stepp’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]

HUFF, KITTREDGE, and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur. 


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