According Weight to a Mitigating Circumstance That Is Supported by the Record
In Trease v. State, 768 So. 2d 1050, 1055 (Fla. 2000), the Court receded from Campbell v. State (1990) to the extent that it disallowed trial courts from according no weight to a mitigating factor and held that trial courts, for reasons unique to a case, can decide not to accord weight to a mitigating circumstance that is supported by the record.
Even though a mitigating circumstance is afforded no weight, it must be expressly considered in the sentencing order. See Rogers v. State, 783 So. 2d 980, 995 (Fla. 2001).
