The State, Respondent,

v.

Ronald David Satterfield, Appellant.


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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-036
Submitted December 1, 2008 – Filed January 15, 2009


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:  Ronald Satterfield appeals his guilty plea to trafficking methamphetamine in excess of ten grams.  On appeal, Satterfield argues that his guilty plea failed to comply with Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), because the judge did not adequately inform Satterfield of his right to confront the State’s witnesses against him.  After a thorough review of the record 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 Satterfield’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

WILLIAMS, PIEPER, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur. 


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