            Patrick Person appeals his sentences for eleven felony convictions, claiming the district court abused its discretion by not granting his request for deferred judgments.  OPINION HOLDS: Since the district court adequately explained the reasons for the sentences imposed and did not consider any impermissible factors, we conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion by denying Person’s request for deferred judgments.
