v.

Nicholas G. Macklen, Appellant.


Appeal From Horry County
Larry B. Hyman, Jr., Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2012-UP-106
Submitted February 1, 2012 – Filed February 22, 2012   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia; and Nicholas G. Macklen, pro se, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, 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:  Nicholas G. Macklen appeals his guilty pleas for first-degree burglary, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, and three counts of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in great bodily injury, arguing the circuit court erred in failing to inform him that he was waiving his right to confront witnesses.  Additionally, Macklen filed a pro se brief.  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.

FEW, C.J., HUFF and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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