v.

James Kevin Williams, Appellant.


Appeal From Spartanburg County
 J. Cordell Maddox, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2009-UP-372
Submitted June 1, 2009 – Filed June 29, 2009


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, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Harold W. Gowdy, III, of Spartanburg, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: James Kevin Williams appeals his guilty plea to criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature and criminal domestic violence, second offense.  Williams asserts the trial court erred by accepting his plea because it did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Williams filed a pro se brief arguing the trial court erred by not advising him of the range of punishment.  After a thorough review of the record and both briefs 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.
