v.

Appeal From Richland County
 J. Michelle Childs, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-018
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed January 25, 2010 


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Joseph McCants-Freeman appeals his guilty pleas to armed robbery and kidnapping, arguing the circuit court erred in accepting his guilty pleas without informing him that by pleading, he waived his right to cross-examine the State's witness.  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] McCants-Freeman's appeal and grant counsel's motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. 

HUFF, A.C.J., GEATHERS, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur. 


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