STATE OF IDAHO,
BRIAN KEITH BLACK,
Appeal from the District Court of the Seventh Judicial District, State of Idaho, Bingham County. Hon. Darren B. Simpson, District Judge.
2013 Unpublished Opinion No. 304
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THIS IS AN UNPUBLISHED OPINION AND SHALL NOT BE CITED AS AUTHORITY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 four years, for burglary, affirmed.
Before LANSING, Judge; GRATTON, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
Brian Keith Black pled guilty to burglary. I.C. §§ 18-1401, 18-1403. The district court sentenced Black to a unified term of ten years, with a minimum period of confinement of four years. Black 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, Black's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
