STATE OF IDAHO,
GABRIEL L. BAKER,
Appeal from the District Court of the Fifth Judicial District, State of Idaho, Lincoln County. Hon. John K. Butler, District Judge.
2012 Unpublished Opinion No. 713
Stephen W. Kenyon, Clerk
THIS IS AN UNPUBLISHED OPINION AND SHALL NOT BE CITED AS AUTHORITY
Judgment of conviction and unified sentence of ten years, with a minimum period of confinement of eight years, for conspiracy to commit burglary, affirmed.
Before GRATTON, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
Gabriel L. Baker pled guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary. Idaho Code §§ 18-1401, 18-1701. The district court sentenced Baker to a unified term of ten years, with a minimum period of confinement of eight years. Baker appeals asserting that the district court abused its discretion by imposing an excessive sentence.
Baker is estopped to complain of the sentence he stipulated to. State v. Leyva, 117 Idaho 462, 465, 788 P.2d 863, 866 (Ct. App. 1990). Moreover, 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, Baker's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
