v.

Stacy Andre Wright, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
 Diane Schafer Goodstein, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-394
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 15, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender LaNelle C. DuRant, 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 Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Stacy Wright appeals his guilty plea to trafficking cocaine and possession of cocaine.  He maintains his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), because the plea court failed to adequately inform him of the constitutional rights he waived by entering a guilty plea.  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 Wright’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.
