Curtis Sam Newsom, a/k/a Curtis Sam Newson, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
James R. Barber, III, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-056
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, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Curtis Sam Newsom appeals his guilty pleas and sentences for one count of resisting arrest and eight counts of forgery.  He maintains his guilty pleas failed to comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969), because the plea court failed to advise him of the maximum penalty that could be imposed for each charge.  Additionally, he contends the plea court erred in failing to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea after sentencing.  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] Newsom'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.
