Appeal From Florence County
 Thomas A. Russo, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2009-UP-357
Submitted June 1, 2009 – Filed June 23, 2009


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott; all of Columbia; and Solicitor Edgar L. Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Tyrone Prince Singletary appeals his guilty plea to nonviolent second-degree burglary, malicious injury to real property greater than $5,000, and malicious injury to personal property greater than $5,000.  Singletary argues the trial court erred by accepting his plea because it did not comply with Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  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.

SHORT, WILLIAMS, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
