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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-303
Submitted June 2, 2008 – Filed June 11, 2008   


DISMISSED


Chief Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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 Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Tavia Murray appeals her guilty plea to possession with intent to distribute crack, distribution of crack, possession with intent to distribute crack within proximity of a park, and distribution of crack within proximity of a park.  Murray contends the circuit court committed reversible error in accepting her guilty plea without obtaining a waiver of her right to confrontation, thereby failing to comply with the mandates of Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  In a separate pro se argument, Murray argues her counsel was ineffective, her guilty plea was obtained through threats, officers violated her privacy, and officers dismissed charges on an informant in a conspiracy to place charges on her.  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 Murray’s 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.
