v.

Darrell Copeland, Appellant.


Appeal From Greenville County
Larry R. Patterson, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-482
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 12, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Chief Appellate Defender Joseph L. Savitz, III, 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 M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Darrell Copeland appeals his guilty plea to shoplifting, third offense, and receiving stolen goods.  Copeland argues the trial court erred by accepting his guilty plea without first obtaining a waiver of his right of confrontation.  After a thorough review of the record and both briefs 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 Copeland’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved. [1]

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

KONDUROS, J., CURETON and GOOLSBY, A.J.J., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
