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 Warren B. Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Lupaka Robert Kupo appeals from his guilty plea to autobreaking and petit larceny.  On appeal, Kupo argues his plea did not comply with the mandates of Boykin 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.
