APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, 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: Shondell C. Patterson appeals his guilty plea to resisting arrest with a deadly weapon and two counts of assault and battery upon an emergency medical service provider.  He maintains his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss[1] Patterson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

Hearn, C.J., Short and Konduros, JJ., concur


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