Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-367
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 11, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


LaNelle C. DuRant, South Carolina Commission on 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, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Cecil Kelly Jackson, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Bostic appeals his guilty pleas to manufacturing crack cocaine, trafficking crack cocaine, trafficking cocaine of 28 to 100 grams, and possession of a pistol with an obliterated or removed serial number.  On appeal, Bostic’s counsel alleges the plea did not meet the mandates of Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Bostic’s pro se 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] Bostic’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.
