What factors could a defence consider for their arguments when persecuting the accused to get a lesser charge?

is this information applicable to the question?:

Guilty Plea may = Lesser Sentence

If an offender admits responsibility early on, this is a mitigating factor in sentencing. A mitigating factor is one that benefits the offender and leads to a lesser sentence.

Some offenders take the opportunity to plead guilty as soon as possible for this reason. Quick guilty pleas are considered a mitigating factor primarily for two reasons:

1) they demonstrate the offender has taken the first step in his rehabilitation (admitting responsibility);

2) they use less prosecution resources.

It is the job of the defendant's lawyer to secure the best possible deal for their client in exchange for them pleading guilty.
