IN THE COURT OF APPEALS OF THE STATE OF IDAHO


July 18, 2012

STATE OF IDAHO, PLAINTIFF-RESPONDENT,
v.
STEVEN MICHAEL RANKIN, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.

Appeal from the District Court of the Seventh Judicial District, State of Idaho, Bonneville County. Hon. Gregory S. Anderson, District Judge.

Per curiam.

2012 Unpublished Opinion No. 555

Stephen W. Kenyon, Clerk

THIS IS AN UNPUBLISHED OPINION AND SHALL NOT BE CITED AS AUTHORITY

Judgment of conviction and concurrent unified sentences of twenty years, with a minimum period of confinement of fifteen years, for burglary; life imprisonment, with a minimum period of confinement of fifteen years, for robbery; and thirty years, with a minimum period of confinement of fifteen years, for attempted second degree murder, affirmed.

Before GRATTON, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge

Steven Michael Rankin was found guilty of burglary, I.C. § 18-1401; robbery, I.C. §§ 18- 6501, 18-6503, 118-112A; and attempted second degree murder, I.C. §§ 18-4001, 18-4002, 18- 4003(g), 18-4004, 18-306. Rankin stipulated to an enhancement for use of a deadly weapon, I.C. § 19-2520, and an enhancement for great bodily injury, I.C. § 19-2520(B). The district court sentenced Rankin to concurrent unified sentences of twenty years, with a minimum period of confinement of fifteen years, for burglary; life imprisonment, with a minimum period of confinement of fifteen years, for robbery; and thirty years, with a minimum period of confinement of fifteen years, for attempted second degree murder. Rankin appeals. Sentencing is a matter for the trial court's discretion. Both our standard of review and the factors to be considered in evaluating the reasonableness of the sentence are well established and need not be repeated here. See State v. Hernandez, 121 Idaho 114, 117-18, 822 P.2d 1011, 1014- 15 (Ct. App. 1991); State v. Lopez, 106 Idaho 447, 449-51, 680 P.2d 869, 871-73 (Ct. App. 1984); State v. Toohill, 103 Idaho 565, 568, 650 P.2d 707, 710 (Ct. App. 1982). When reviewing the length of a sentence, we consider the defendant's entire sentence. State v. Oliver, 144 Idaho 722, 726, 170 P.3d 387, 391 (2007). Applying these standards, and having reviewed the record in this case, we cannot say that the district court abused its discretion.

Therefore, Rankin's judgment of conviction and sentences are affirmed.
