v.

Doran Washington, Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
 Edward W. Miller, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-169
Submitted March 3, 2008 – Filed March 12, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Doran Washington appeals his guilty plea to three counts of attempted armed robbery, arguing his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Specifically, Washington maintains the trial court erred by accepting his guilty plea without an affirmative showing his 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[1] Washington’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and PIEPER, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


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