Appeal From Bamberg County
 Doyet A. Early, III, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2009-UP-274
Submitted May 1, 2009 – Filed June 2, 2009


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, 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 Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Courtney Folk appeals his guilty plea and sentence for trafficking crack cocaine, arguing the plea judge erred in accepting his plea without advising him of his right to a jury trial or his right to confront his accusers.  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.
