Before LANSING, Judge; GRATTON, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge.
Crickett Rachel Ray was convicted of felony possession of marijuana, Idaho Code § 37-2732(e). The district court sentenced Ray to a unified term of five years, with a minimum period of confinement of two years, suspended the sentence and placed Ray on supervised probation for two years with the condition that she successfully complete the Drug Court Program. Two weeks later, Ray violated her probation and consequently was not accepted into the Drug Court Program. The district court revoked probation and ordered execution of the underlying sentence. Ray appeals, contending that the district court abused its discretion in failing to sua sponte reduce her sentence upon revocation of probation.

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 ...
