Appeal From Lexington County
 James W. Johnson, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-360
Submitted June 1, 2009 – Filed June 24, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, 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 Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Ronald Reese appeals his guilty plea to distribution of marijuana within proximity of a school, distribution of marijuana, and possession with intent to distribute cocaine, second offense.  Reese 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.

HEARN, C.J., THOMAS and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


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