STATE OF IDAHO,
CARLOS PIZANO SOLIS,
Appeal from the District Court of the Third Judicial District, State of Idaho, Canyon County. Hon. Renae J. Hoff, District Judge.
2013 Unpublished Opinion No. 449
THIS IS AN UNPUBLISHED OPINION AND SHALL NOT BE CITED AS AUTHORITY
Stephen W. Kenyon, Clerk
Judgment of conviction and unified sentence of ten years, with a minimum period of confinement of four years, for domestic battery causing traumatic injury, affirmed.
Before GUTIERREZ, Chief Judge; GRATTON, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
Carlos Pizano Solis pled guilty to domestic battery causing traumatic injury. Idaho Code §§ 18-903, 18-918(2). The district court sentenced Solis to a unified term of ten years, with a minimum period of confinement of four years. Solis appeals asserting that the district court abused its discretion by imposing an excessive sentence.
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, Solis's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
