APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission of Indigent Defense, Division of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Ralph E. Hoisington, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Paul Raymon Binion appeals his guilty plea and sentence for forgery, stealing bonds, financial identity fraud, and bank fraud.

California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), we dismiss[1] Binion’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

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


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