PER CURIAM: Samuel M. Odom appeals his guilty plea to two counts of distribution of marijuana.  He maintains his guilty plea failed to conform with the mandates set forth in Boykin v.

Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss[1] Odom’s appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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