APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, 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 Warren B. Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Henry Ladson, Jr. appeals his pleas of guilty to second-degree burglary, grand larceny, and petit larceny.  On appeal, Ladson argues that his guilty pleas failed to comply with Boykin v. Alabama, 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 Ladson’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, HUFF, and THOMAS, JJ., concur.


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