Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-371
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 11, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, 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: Paul Demar Jeffcoat appeals his guilty plea to burglary in the second degree and strong armed robbery.  He maintains his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Specifically, Jeffcoat asserts he did not meaningfully waive his rights.  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] Jeffcoat’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.
