The State, Respondent,

v.

Willie David Jones, Appellant.


Appeal From Spartanburg County
 Lee S. Alford, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-135
Submitted March 2, 2009 – Filed March 9, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, 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 Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Jones appeals his guilty pleas and sentences for one count of criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and two counts of criminal domestic violence.  On appeal, Jones argues the trial court erred in denying his motion for a continuance to retain to counsel, and therefore his guilty plea failed to comply with the mandates set forth in 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[1] Jones’ appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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