Appeal From Spartanburg County
 J. Cordell Maddox, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-242
Submitted May 1, 2009 – Filed May 28, 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, of Columbia; and Solicitor Harold W Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Jesse Williams appeals his guilty plea and sentence for driving under the influence, third offense, arguing the plea court erred (1) in accepting his plea because the State failed to establish his prior convictions;  and (2) by failing to advise him of the mandatory minimum and maximum sentence he faced.  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.
