v.

Appeal From Richland County
Alison Renee Lee, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-354
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 10, 2008   


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:  Charles Tucker, Jr., appeals his guilty plea to first degree sexual exploitation of a minor and sentence of nine years imprisonment.  Tucker argues his guilty plea was involuntary because it 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 Tucker’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.
