v.

Terrence T. Wakefield, Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
 Diane Schafer Goodstein, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-170
Submitted March 3, 2008 – Filed March 12, 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 Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Terrence Wakefield appeals his guilty pleas to carjacking, failure to stop for a blue light, and failure to stop at the scene of an accident where there was property damage.  On appeal, Wakefield 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 adequately advise him of his constitutional rights.  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] Wakefield’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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