Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-160

APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission of Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, 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 Ralph E. Hoisington, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Walter Demetrius Brown appeals his guilty plea for shoplifting, maintaining the trial court erred by accepting his plea without an affirmative showing it was intelligently and voluntarily entered.  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] Brown’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.
