Appeal From Richland County
 Carmen T. Mullen, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-421
Submitted July 1, 2008 – Filed July 21, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Office of the Attorney General; and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Isaac Coakley appeals his guilty plea to second degree burglary and shoplifting third offense and subsequent sentence of eight years imprisonment.  He maintains his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama because the plea court failed to adequately inform him of the constitutional rights he waived by entering a guilty plea.  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 Coakley’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.
