APPEAL DISMISSED


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

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia; and† Solicitor Druanne Dykes White, of Anderson; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Tommy Busby appeals his guilty plea to assault with intent to commit CSC and assault with intent to kill.† Busby argues the trial court violated the mandate of Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1965), by accepting his guilty plea because his plea was not knowingly and voluntarily entered.† After a thorough review of the record and counselís 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 [1] Busbyís appeal and grant counselís motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., GOOLSBY and SHULER, JJ., concur.
