Unpublished Opinion No. 2003-UP-615
Submitted August 20, 2003 Ė Filed October 21, 2003††


Assistant Appellate Defender Aileen P. Clare, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Charles H. Richardson, all of Columbia;† and† Solicitor Thomas E. Pope, of York, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:† Gregory Allen Faile appeals from the trial courtís acceptance of his guilty plea for driving under the influence (second), driving under suspension (second), and habitual traffic offender.† Faile argues the pleas were not knowingly and intelligently made due to his disagreement with the Stateís facts.† Faileís counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating that she had reviewed the record and concluded this appeal lacks merit.† 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] Faileís appeal and grant counselís motion to be relieved.


HEARN, C.J., CONNOR and ANDERSON, JJ., concur.

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