Before GUTIERREZ, Chief Judge; LANSING, Judge; and MELANSON, Judge
Mitchell James Bias was found guilty of conspiracy, with the object of committing the crimes of robbery and burglary. Idaho Code § 18-1701. The district court sentenced Bias to a unified term of eight years, with two years determinate. Bias 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, Bias's judgment of conviction and sentence are affirmed.
