v.

Kevin Thompson, Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
 William P. Keesley, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-353
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 10, 2008  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, 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. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Kevin Thompson appeals his guilty plea to possession with intent to distribute cocaine within the proximity of a school.  On appeal, Thompson argues the trial judge erred by accepting the guilty plea when the State failed to introduce an official drug analysis.  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] Thompson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

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.
