v.

Dennis Hunter, Appellant.


Appeal From Darlington County
John M. Milling, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-582
Submitted November 2, 2009 – Filed December 3, 2009


APPEAL DISMISSED


Senior Appellate Attorney Joseph L. Savitz, III, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; Solicitor Jay Hodge, Jr., of Cheraw, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Dennis Hunter appeals his guilty plea to murder and corresponding forty-year sentence.  He also pled guilty to armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and was sentenced to concurrent terms of twenty-five, five, and five years' imprisonment, respectively.  Hunter argues the plea court erred in accepting his guilty plea to murder because the State conceded he was not the triggerman.  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[1] the appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.

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.
