Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-465
Submitted October 1, 2009 – Filed October 12, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender M. Celia Robinson, 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 Christina T. Adams, of Anderson, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Stephen Casillo appeals his guilty pleas for four counts of armed robbery, attempted armed robbery, assault with intent to kill, and possession of a bomb or hoax device.  On appeal, his counsel argues his guilty plea did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Additionally, Casillo filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and all 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. 

HUFF, THOMAS, and PIEPER, JJ., concur.          


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