APPEAL DISMISSED


Assistant Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, Office of Appellate Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, Office of the Attorney General, all of Columbia; and Solicitor, David M. Pascoe, Jr., of Summerville, for Respondents.

PER CURIAM:† Glen Ancrum appeals his guilty plea and sentence for possession of crack cocaine, threatening the life of a public official, and accessory after the fact of armed robbery, arguing he was unable to knowingly and intelligently waive his constitutional rights because the trial court failed to comply with Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969).† Ancrumís counsel attached to the brief a petition to be relieved as counsel, stating she had reviewed the record and concluded Ancrumís appeal lacked merit.† Ancrum has not filed a separate pro se brief.† 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 Ancrumís appeal and grant counselís motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED. [1]
