APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender 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 Solicitor Scarlett A. Wilson, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Darian Antway Meggett appeals his guilty plea to criminal domestic violence, third offense, and three-year sentence.  Meggett's counsel argues his plea did not conform to the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Meggett filed a separate pro se brief.  After consideration of both briefs, and review 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., and KONDUROS and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


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