 Paul M. Burch, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-185
Submitted March 3, 2008 – Filed March 17, 2008 


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, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia, and Solicitor Edgar L. Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Tiwan Graham (Graham) appeals his guilty plea to for voluntary manslaughter.  On appeal, Graham maintains his sentence should be vacated because the trial court did not comply with the mandates of Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969). 

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 Graham’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.
