APPEAL DISMISSED


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, of Columbia; and Solicitor David M. Pascoe, Jr., of Summerville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Christopher Aiken appeals from his guilty plea for second degree burglary, arguing the plea judge erred in failing to fully advise him of the manner and method by which to appeal.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel's brief, pursuant to Anders v.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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