v.

Andre Bush, Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
 Diane Schafer Goodstein, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-178
Submitted March 3, 2008 – Filed March 14, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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: Andre Bush appeals his guilty plea to common law robbery.  On appeal, Bush maintains the plea court, by advising him of his right to appeal, rendered his plea conditional, and therefore, invalid under our jurisprudence.  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] Bush’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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