@TammyGarrison: From previous reporting, here's info that might help. Especially the ones I'll put stars next to: Mitigating factors under Colorado law that could be included in this case are:
The defendant's capacity to appreciate wrongfulness of the defendant's conduct or to conform the defendant's conduct to the requirements of law was significantly impaired, but not so impaired as to constitute a defense to prosecution
The defendant was under unusual and substantial duress, although not such duress as to constitute a defense to prosecution; or
*The emotional state of the defendant at the time the crime was committed
**The absence of any significant prior conviction
The extent of the defendant's cooperation with law enforcement officers or agencies and with the office of the prosecuting district attorney
The good faith, although mistaken, belief by the defendant that circumstances existed which constituted a moral justification for the defendant's conduct
The defendant is not a continuing threat to society
***Any other evidence which in the court's opinion bears on the question of mitigation.
