APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, 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 Jerry W. Peace, of Greenwood, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Michael Leon Carroll appeals his guilty plea for conspiracy and his pleas pursuant to North Carolina v. Alford, 400 U.S. 25 (1970), for two counts of distribution of crack cocaine.  Carroll argues the plea court erred by advising him that he had the right to appeal.  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.

Short, Williams, and Geathers, J.J., concur.


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