Appeal From Abbeville County
Wyatt T. Saunders, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-055
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed January 27, 2010   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, 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; Solicitor Jerry Peace, of Greenwood, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Carlos Mattison appeals his guilty pleas and sentences for possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine within the proximity of a school, and driving under suspension.  He maintains the plea court erred in failing to reinstate his bond and allow him to withdraw his guilty plea after plea counsel erroneously informed him he would be able to appeal the plea court's ruling denying his motion to suppress.  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] Mattison's appeal and grant counsel's petition to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

SHORT, THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


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