v.

Rashad Graham, Appellant.


Appeal From Aiken County
 James E. Lockemy, Circuit Court Judge


 Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-216
Submitted April 1, 2008 – Filed April 7, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Lanelle C. Durant, 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:  Rashad Graham appeals his conviction and sentence for possession with intent to distribute powder cocaine.  On appeal, Graham argues his guilty plea failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), because the trial court accepted his guilty plea without requiring the State to produce the results of its chemical analysis of the cocaine.  Graham did not file a separate pro se brief.  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] Graham’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.
