Before GUTIERREZ, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and GRATTON, Judge.
Ramon Villalba Gonzalez pled guilty to lewd conduct with a minor child under sixteen, Idaho Code § 18-1508. The district court sentenced Gonzalez to a unified term of six years, with two years determinate. Gonzalez appeals, contending his sentence is 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, Gonzalez's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
