APPEAL DISMISSED


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:  Joshua Pogue appeals from his guilty plea to assault and battery with intent to kill and possession of a pistol by a person under twenty-one.  On appeal, Pogue argues the plea judge erred in failing to insure that the guilty plea was entered voluntarily and knowingly.  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.
