Unpublished Opinion No.   2009-UP-472
Submitted October 1, 2009 – Filed October 13, 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 Robert M. Ariail, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Kevin Black appeals his guilty pleas for first-degree assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct with a minor and lewd act upon a child. On appeal, his counsel argues his guilty pleas did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Additionally, Black 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.
