Some factors may indicate that the offender's culpability is unusually low, or that the harm caused by an offence is less than usually serious1, for example:
(1) a greater degree of provocation than normally expected2;
(2) mental illness or disability3;
(3) youth or age, where it affects the responsibility of the individual defendant4;
(4) the fact that the offender played only a minor role in the offence
