Appeal From Union County
Lee S. Alford, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2011-UP-306
Submitted June 1, 2011 – Filed June 17, 2011 


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Pachak, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Kevin S. Brackett, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Yolanda Thompson appeals her convictions for armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a knife during the commission of a violence crime, and criminal conspiracy, arguing (1) her guilty plea did not comply with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969); (2) the State failed to prove she acted with malice in committing her crimes; and (3) ineffective assistance of counsel.  After a thorough review of the record and all briefs 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.

SHORT, KONDUROS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur. 


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