Appellate Defender Lanelle C. Durant, 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 Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Purley McIlwaine appeals from his guilty plea and conviction for entering a bank depository building or loan associated with intent to steal.  He argues the plea court failed to adequately advise him of his constitutional rights.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel's brief, and McIlwaine's pro se 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.
