Legal Glossary: Mitigating Factors

Mitigating factors include any condition or context to a criminal act that subjects the charges to a reduced sentence. For instance, if drug or alcohol abuse or mental illness played a part in a crime, a defense attorney may argue that the client should be forced into rehab as opposed to serving a prison term.
