v.

Appeal From Edgefield County
 Jackson V. Gregory, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-302
Submitted June 2, 2008 – Filed June 11, 2008   


DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, 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 Donald V. Meyers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Tyler Stevens appeals his guilty plea to armed robbery, contending his waiver of rights colloquy was insufficient and therefore failed to 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 Stevens’ appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

DISMISSED.

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


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