v.

Eliana King, Appellant.


Appeal From Horry County
Steven H. John, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2012-UP-126
Submitted February 1, 2012 – Filed February 29, 2012


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Kathrine H. Hudgins, of Columbia, 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:  Eliana King appeals her guilty plea, arguing the circuit court erred in accepting her plea when her prolonged detention and questioning by the police exceeded the scope of the initial traffic stop and violated her constitutional rights.  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.

PIEPER, KONDUROS, and GEATHERS, JJ., concur.


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