Submitted April 1, 2009 – Filed May 18, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Genience Tinsley appeals her guilty plea to eight counts of forgery, and sentence of eight concurrent five year terms, suspended upon the service of three years’ imprisonment and five years probation with the special condition of restitution.  Tinsley argues her guilty plea did not 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 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.
