Unpublished Opinion No.  2010-UP-392
Submitted August 2, 2010 – Filed August 25, 2010


APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Benjamin Aplin, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Jerome Phillips appeals his plea of no contest for possession of crack cocaine, second offense.  On appeal, Phillips contends the plea court erred in accepting his plea because he did not make an informed and intelligent decision to plead guilty.  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.

FEW, C.J., KONDUROS and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


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