Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-410
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 18, 2008 


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney Wanda H. Carter, 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, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren B. Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Maurice M. Davis appeals his guilty plea to criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and sentence. He argues the plea court erred by failing to inform him a guilty plea would waive his right to present a defense in this case.  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] Davis’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.
