PER CURIAM:  Keith Sharpe appeals his guilty plea to possession with intent to distribute cocaine and criminal domestic violence (third offense), arguing the plea judge erred in accepting his plea without advising him of his right to confront his accusers.  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.

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


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