v.

Rashard Jerome Rivers, Appellant.


Appeal From Charleston County
R. Markley Dennis, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2010-UP-487 
Submitted November 1, 2010 – Filed November 4, 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, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Scarlett Anne Wilson, of Charleston, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Rashard Jerome Rivers pled guilty to first-degree burglary, involuntary manslaughter, and grand larceny.  Rivers received twenty-three years' imprisonment for burglary, and five years' each on involuntary manslaughter and grand larceny, to run concurrently.  Rivers appealed, arguing the plea court erred in failing to adequately advise him of the sentencing consequences of his plea.  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.

THOMAS, PIEPER, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur. 


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