Unpublished Opinion No.  2009-UP-580

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, of Columbia; and Solicitor Kevin Scott Brackett, of York; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Charles Hagwood, Jr., appeals from his guilty plea to distribution of marijuana, and trafficking cocaine in an amount greater than twenty-eight grams but less than one-hundred grams, arguing the plea court failed to inform him that during trial, he would have the right to challenge the admission of a statement made to police.  Hagwood filed a separate 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.

HEARN, C.J., CURETON, A.J., and GOOLSBY, A.J., concur.


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