APPEAL 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, and Solicitor Warren B. Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kentwan L. pled guilty to (1) failing to stop on police command; (2) possession of a pistol by a person under the age of twenty one; and (3) shoplifting.  Kentwan L. was found delinquent and committed to the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice for an indeterminate period of time not to exceed his twenty first birthday.  Kentwan L. appeals his guilty plea, arguing his guilty plea did not comply with the mandates set forth in 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 Kentwan L.’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

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


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