From a Tough, Seasoned, Credentialed Detroit Criminal Defense Attorney with the Experience and Perception of a Former Wayne County Prosecutor.

Client Charged With:

Witness Intimidating, Homicide - Murder First Degree - Premeditated (Conspiracy) and Homicide - Murder First Degree - Premeditated.
During the trial which lasted 21 days, the prosecution argued that the defendent had murdered a man as he sat on his front porch. The prosecution introduced 150 exhibits into evidence and called 27 witnesses including two expert witnesses. During closing arguments Attorney Jordan reminded the jury that a police officer had been charged with two counts of lying to a police officer during a violent crime investigation and argued that as a crack dealer, the deceased was involved in a very dangerous profession in a very dangerous city and that any number of people could have wanted him killed. Attorney Jordan, in a gutsy move, recited the lyrics to 10 Crack Commandments by Biggie Smalls, a crack dealer turned rapper/entertainer. The lyrics paint an accurate description of the dangers faced by drug dealers.

The Verdict
The jury deliberated for six hours. On March 17, 2016, the jury returned verdicts of NOT GUILTY on two counts of Homicide – Murder First Degree. The Witness Intimidation charge was dismissed.

Client Charged With:

Assault With Intent to Murder, Assault With Intent to Do Great Bodily Harm less Than Murder, Weapons - Dangerous Weapon - Carrying With Unlawful Intent, Weapons Felony Firearm and Weapons-firearms-brandishing in Public.
In October 2013, a 26-year-old male was charged with four serious felonies. His first attorney, appointed by the court, wanted the defendant to plead guilty, virtually guaranteeing a substantial prison sentence. The young man’s mother, searched for a lawyer to defend her son, but every criminal defense attorney she called brushed her off. Then she called Criminal Attorney Carl Jordan who discussed the case from a perspective of going to trial and presenting an aggressive defense. Mr. Jordan was hired to represent the defendant.

The Verdict
Three felony charges were dismissed and the remaining felony was reduced to a misdemeanor that carried one-year of probation.
