v.

Michael Kenny Carter, Appellant.


Appeal From Richland County
Kenneth G. Goode, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-121
Submitted January 4, 2010 – Filed February 11, 2010


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender M. Celia Robinson, 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:  Michael Kenny Carter appeals his guilty plea for accessory after the fact to armed robbery, arguing the trial court erred in accepting his guilty plea because his plea did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).  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.
