STATE OF IDAHO, PLAINTIFF-RESPONDENT,
FRANCES DARLEEN RAWLIN, DEFENDANT-APPELLANT.
Appeal from the District Court of the Third Judicial District, State of Idaho, Canyon County. Hon. Renae J. Hoff, District Judge.
2012 Unpublished Opinion No. 743
Stephen W. Kenyon, Clerk
THIS IS AN UNPUBLISHED OPINION AND SHALL NOT BE CITED AS AUTHORITY
Judgment of conviction and suspended unified sentence of five years with a minimum period of confinement of two and one-half years for felony possession of fraudulently obtained goods, affirmed.
Before GRATTON, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and GUTIERREZ, Judge
Frances Darleen Rawlin was convicted of felony possession of fraudulently obtained goods, Idaho Code §§ 18-3127; 18-3128; 18-3126. The district court sentenced Rawlin to a unified term of five years with a minimum period of confinement of two and one-half years, suspended the sentence, and placed Rawlin on supervised probation for five years. Rawlin filed an Idaho Criminal Rule 35 motion for reduction of sentence which the district court denied. Rawlin appeals, contending that her sentence is excessive.
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, Rawlin's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
