Appellate Defender LaNelle C. DuRant, of Columbia, for Appellant.

PER CURIAM:  Tina Laverne Sumter appeals from her guilty plea to kidnapping, assault and battery with intent to kill, and abuse of a vulnerable person.  She argues the plea court failed to adequately advise her of her constitutional rights.  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.
