PER CURIAM

Remanded for resentencing; otherwise affirmed.

PER CURIAM

Defendant was convicted of felony fourth-degree assault and reckless endangerment.  For the assault, the trial court sentenced him to 55 months' imprisonment, followed by 24 months' post-prison supervision.  Defendant did not object to the sentence.  He now appeals, assigning error to the imposition of the sentence, which he contends violates OAR 213-005-0002(4).  That rule provides that a "term of post-prison supervision, when added to the prison term, shall not exceed the statutory maximum indeterminate sentence for the crime of conviction."  In this case, defendant contends, he was convicted of a Class C felony, which carries a maximum indeterminate sentence of 60 months.  ORS 161.605(3).  That means that his sentence of 55 months' imprisonment plus 24 months' post-prison supervision--totaling 79 months--exceeds the 60-month maximum.  The state concedes that the sentence plainly violates OAR 213-005-0002(4) and that the case must be remanded for resentencing.  We agree and accept the concession.

Remanded for resentencing; otherwise affirmed.
