APPEAL DISMISSED


Joseph L. Savitz, III, Acting Chief Attorney, 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. Elliot, Office of the Attorney General, and Solicitor Barbara R. Morgan, of Aiken, for Respondent.†

PER CURIAM:† Frashawn Henderson pled guilty to possession of a stolen vehicle. The judge sentenced him to ten years, suspended on three yearís probation. Henderson appeals these convictions, arguing that the trial court should not have accepted his guilty plea as it did not conform to the requirements of North Carolina v. Alford, 400 U.S. 25 (1970). Pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967), Hendersonís counsel attached a petition to be relieved, stating he had reviewed the record and concluded the appeal is without legal merit sufficient to warrant a new trial. Henderson did not file 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[1] the appeal and grant counselís motion to be relieved.

APPEAL DISMISSED.

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