Appeal From Spartanburg County
 J. Mark Hayes, II, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-271
Submitted May 1, 2009 – Filed June 2, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, of Columbia, for Appellant.

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

PER CURIAM: Sok Bun appeals his guilty plea and sentence for murder, arguing the plea court erred in accepting the plea without first providing Bun with a thorough explanation of the constitutional rights he was waiving.  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.
