STATE OF IDAHO,
ROBERTO MANUEL ROJAS, AKA
Appeal from the District Court of the Third Judicial District, State of Idaho, Canyon County. Hon. Juneal C. Kerrick, District Judge.
2013 Unpublished Opinion No. 459
Stephen W. Kenyon, Clerk
THIS IS AN UNPUBLISHED OPINION AND SHALL NOT BE CITED AS AUTHORITY
Judgment of conviction and unified sentence of five years, with a minimum period of confinement of two years, for aggravated assault, affirmed.
Before LANSING, Judge; GRATTON, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
Roberto Manual Rojas, aka Robert Rojas, pled guilty to aggravated assault. I.C. §§ 18- 901, 18-905(b). In exchange for his guilty plea, a gang enhancement allegation was dismissed. The district court sentenced Rojas to a unified term of five years, with a minimum period of confinement of two years, to run concurrent with an unrelated sentence. Rojas 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, Rojas's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
