APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Rashine Johnson appeals his guilty plea to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.  On appeal, Johnson maintains his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss[1] Johnson’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.
