Deputy Chief Attorney for Capital Appeals Robert M. Dudek, 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 Scarlett Anne Wilson, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Ramona Holmes appeals her guilty pleas for three counts of forgery, financial transaction card fraud, swindling, and exploitation of a vulnerable adult.  On appeal, Holmes' counsel alleges the plea did not meet the mandates of Boykin v.

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

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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


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