Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-252
Submitted May 1, 2009 – Filed May 28, 2009   


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, and Warren B. Giese, all of Columbia; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Dennis Devon Haigler appeals his guilty pleas and sentences for failure to stop for blue light, assault and battery with intent to kill, threatening a public official, threatening a public employee, and assault and battery on emergency personnel.  He argues the plea judge erred in failing to advise the State's recommended sentence was not binding.  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.
