THIS IS AN UNPUBLISHED OPINION AND SHALL NOT
BE CITED AS AUTHORITY
Judgment of conviction and unified sentence of eighteen years, with a minimum period of confinement of eight years, for robbery, affirmed.
Before GRATTON, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
Nathan Wayne Hunt pled guilty to robbery. Idaho Code § 18-6501. The district court sentenced Hunt to a unified term of eighteen years, with a minimum period of confinement of eight years. Hunt appeals contending that the district court abused its discretion by imposing an excessive sentence.
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, Hunt's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
