v.,

Ronnie Russell Williams, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
 G. Thomas Cooper, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-065
Submitted February 2, 2009 – Filed February 9, 2009  


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, 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 Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Ronnie Russell Williams appeals his guilty pleas to entering a bank with the intent to steal, failure to stop for a blue light, and possession of a stolen vehicle and concurrent sentences of twenty years, three years, and thirty days, respectively.  Williams argues the plea court failed to satisfy the mandates of Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), by failing to grant his motion to relieve counsel.  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 the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.[1] 

APPEAL DISMISSED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


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