v.

Appeal From Richland County
 J. Michelle Childs, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-312
Submitted May 1, 2009 – Filed June 11, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief 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, of Columbia; and Solicitor Warren B. Giese, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Takita Onique Jefferson appeals from her guilty plea to financial identity theft and five counts of forgery.  On appeal, Jefferson argues the plea judge erred in accepting her guilty plea without inquiring whether Jefferson understood she was waiving her right to confront her 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.
