BE CITED AS AUTHORITY
Judgments of conviction and unified sentence of ten years with seven years determinate, and consecutive sentence of ten years indeterminate, for two charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, affirmed.
Before LANSING, Judge; GRATTON, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
In this consolidated appeal, Gary William Cloe was convicted of two charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, Idaho Code §§ 18-8004; 18-8005(9). In Docket No. 40303, the district court sentenced Cloe to a unified term of ten years with a minimum period of confinement of seven years; and in Docket No. 40304, the district court imposed a ten-year indeterminate term to run consecutive to the sentence in Docket No. 40303. Cloe appeals, contending that his sentences are 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, Cloe's judgments of conviction and sentences are affirmed.
