The Hearing Officer has discretion in determining the weight to be given to any aggravating or mitigating factor and whether to issue a PDL.

In any hearing for an action where the Hearing Officer has discretion to determine the length of the Restraint, other than for actions pursuant to § 42-2-132.5, C.R.S., the aggravating and mitigating factors set forth in these Rules shall be the primary basis used for determining the length of the Restraint.
1. Where the Hearing Officer finds that the aggravating and mitigating factors weigh evenly, the duration of the Restraint shall be the Base Period;
2. Where the Hearing Officer finds that the aggravating factors outweigh the mitigating factors, the duration shall be longer than the Base Period;
3. Where the Hearing Officer finds that the mitigating factors outweigh the aggravating factors, the duration shall be shorter than the Base Period.
