Appellate Defender LaNelle C. DuRant, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Solicitor Warren B. Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Demetreus Alexander Lewis appeals his guilty pleas and sentences for unlawful carrying of a pistol, possession with intent to distribute marijuana, possession with intent to distribute marijuana within proximity of a school or park, possession of a stolen pistol, kidnapping, and armed robbery, arguing the plea court 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 the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


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