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


Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-608
Submitted December 1, 2009 – Filed December 22, 2009   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Elizabeth A. Franklin-Best, 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 J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Ebon Roberts appeals his guilty plea to kidnapping and strong armed robbery, arguing the trial court abused its discretion by denying his motion to withdraw his guilty plea.  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. 

WILLIAMS, PIEPER, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur. 


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