v.

Jerry Jerome Johnson, II, Appellant.


Appeal From York County
 Lee S. Alford, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-215
Submitted April 1, 2008 – Filed April 4, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Lanelle C. Durant, 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 Kevin S. Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Jerry Jerome Johnson appeals his guilty plea to trafficking in cocaine more than ten grams and possession of marijuana second offense.  On appeal, Johnson argues the trial judge erred by accepting the guilty plea when the State failed to introduce an official drug analysis.  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] Johnson’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.
