v.

Evangeline Pointer, Appellant.


Appeal From Horry County
Edward B. Cottingham, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2010-UP-493
Submitted November 1, 2010 – Filed November 8, 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; and Solicitor J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Evangeline Pointer appeals her guilty plea for forgery, third offense.  Pointer argues the plea court erred in accepting her guilty plea because the State failed to establish a factual basis on the record to support a third offense.  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.

HUFF, KONDUROS, and LOCKEMY, JJ., concur.


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