PER CURIAM

Colby Reid Heaton was convicted of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon enhancement, Idaho Code §§ 18-907(1)(B), 19-2520; and aggravated assault, I.C. § 18-905(A). The district court sentenced Heaton to a unified term of twenty-five years with five years determinate for the battery charge and a concurrent five-year determinate term for the assault charge, and ordered the sentences to run consecutively to the sentences in two unrelated cases. Heaton appeals, contending that his sentences are 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, Heaton's judgment of conviction and sentences are affirmed.
