v.

Enrique Nunez Deniz, Appellant.


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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-202
Submitted April 1, 2009 – Filed May 18, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender M. Celia Robinson, 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: Enrique Nunez Deniz appeals his guilty plea to trafficking crack cocaine and failure to stop for a blue light, and concurrent fifteen year sentences.  Deniz argues the trial court erred by accepting his plea because it did not comply with Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238  (1969).  Deniz also filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and both briefs 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.

Hearn, C.J., Pieper and Lockemy, JJ., concur.


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