Appeal From Richland County
George C. James, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2008-UP-493
Submitted August 1, 2008 – Filed August 18, 2008   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender M. Celia Robinson, 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 B. Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kenneth Bernard Williams appeals his guilty pleas to two counts of grand larceny; two counts of third degree burglary, second offense; receiving stolen goods; and resisting arrest.  Williams argues the trial court erred by accepting his guilty plea because his plea was not knowingly and intelligently made.  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 Williams’ 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.
