 D. Garrison Hill, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-382
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 14, 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; all of Columbia, and Solicitor Robert Mills Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Young pled guilty to three counts of second degree lynching, one count of armed robbery, and one count of breaking and entering an automobile.  On appeal, Young alleges the plea did not meet the mandates of 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 Young’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.
