v.

Dexter Lamont Crawford, Appellant.


Appeal From Florence County
 Michael G. Nettles, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-228
Submitted April 1, 2008 – Filed April 11, 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 Edgar Lewis Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Dexter Lamont Crawford appeals his conviction and sentence for two counts of voluntary manslaughter.  On appeal, Crawford argues the circuit court rendered his guilty plea conditional and therefore invalid by advising him it was appealable.  Crawford 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] Crawford’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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