Rejection of Mitigating Factors In a Sentencing Order
In Bryant v. State, 785 So. 2d 422 (Fla. 2001), the Court upheld the trial court's succinct rejection of mitigating factors in the sentencing order, stating:
"The sentencing order expressly identified this mitigating factor and, while it was discussed only briefly, it is clear the court found the mitigation was not proven by the greater weight of the evidence due to the conflicting testimony." Id. at 433.
