v.

Ronald Wood, Appellant.


Appeal From Lexington County
William P. Keesley, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2009-UP-492
Submitted October 1, 2009 – Filed October 21, 2009


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia,  for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Ronald Wood pled guilty to first-degree burglary and was sentenced to fifteen years' incarceration.  Wood asserts the trial court erred by accepting his plea because it did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  Wood filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and both 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.

SHORT, WILLIAMS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur. 


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