Appeal from the District Court of the Third Judicial District, State of Idaho, Canyon County. Hon. Susan E. Wiebe, District Judge.
2013 Unpublished Opinion No. 307
OPINION AND SHALL NOT BE CITED AS AUTHORITY
Judgment of conviction and unified sentence of twenty-five years with a minimum period of confinement of ten years for aggravated battery, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a crime, and being a persistent violator, affirmed.
Before GUTIERREZ, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and GRATTON, Judge
Juan Martinez, Jr., was convicted of aggravated battery, Idaho Code §§ 18-903(a), 18- 907(b); with sentence enhancements for possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a crime, I.C. § 19-2520; and being a persistent violator, I.C. § 19-2514. The district court sentenced Martinez to a unified term of twenty-five years with a minimum period of confinement of ten years. Martinez appeals, contending that his 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, Martinez's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
