Judgment of conviction and unified sentence of five years, with a minimum period of confinement of two years, for unlawful possession of a firearm, affirmed.
Before GUTIERREZ, Chief Judge; GRATTON, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
Tommy Eugene Tiedemann pled guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm. I.C. § 18- 3116. In exchange for his guilty plea, an additional charge and an allegation that Tiedemann was a persistent violator were dismissed. The district court sentenced Tiedemann to a unified term of five years, with a minimum period of confinement of two years. Tiedemann 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, Tiedemann's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
