STATE OF IDAHO, Plaintiff-Respondent,
FAWZI REHEMA AL-SARAJY, Defendant-Appellant.
2014 Unpublished Opinion No. 308
Appeal from the District Court of the Fourth Judicial District, State of Idaho, Ada County. Hon. Patrick H. Owen, District Judge.
Judgment of conviction and unified sentence of ten years, with a minimum period of confinement of five years, for trafficking in methamphetamine, affirmed.
Sara B. Thomas, State Appellate Public Defender; Spencer J. Hahn, Deputy Appellate Public Defender, Boise, for appellant.
Hon. Lawrence G. Wasden, Attorney General; Lori A. Fleming, Deputy Attorney General, Boise, for respondent.
Before GUTIERREZ, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge.
Fawzi Rehema Al-Sarajy was found guilty of trafficking in methamphetamine. I.C. § 37-2732B(a)(4). The district court sentenced Al-Sarajy to a unified term of ten years, with a minimum period of confinement of five years. Al-Sarajy filed an I.C.R. 35 motion for reduction of his sentence, which the district court denied. Al-Sarajy 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, Al-Sarajy's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
