Appeal From Florence County
John L. Breeden, Jr., Circuit Court Judge
Unpublished Opinion No. 2009-UP-422
Submitted September 1, 2009 - Filed September 3, 2009
Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor Edgar L. Clements, III, of Florence, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Regal L. Bufkin appeals his guilty plea under North Carolina v. Alford, 400 U.S. 25 (1970), for a lewd act on a minor. Bufkin argues the trial court erred by not ensuring his plea complied with the mandates set forth in Boykin v. Alabama, 395 U.S. 238 (1969). 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.
HUFF, THOMAS, and PIEPER, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
