U.S. Army v. E-3 (AWOL)
The Client was charged with two AWOL’s, and threatening a Superior Officer. The Client was allegedly AWOL for approximately 5 years before he was picked up on a warrant. Prior to Mr. Jordan’s appearance in this case, a Senior NCO convinced the Client that his Military Defense counsel did not have the Client’s best interests at heart and that he should go AWOL again.
Upon the Client’s second arrest on warrants, Mr. Jordan was brought on board to represent this client. Over the course of 5 months, a deal was reached that the maximum amount of time the Client would serve in confinement was 6 months.
Result: Guilty, 3 months confinement, Reduction to E-1 and Bad Conduct Discharge. Mr. Jordan successfully beat the deal by effectively cross-examining the Government’s sentencing witnesses on how they treated their soldier. Impressive mitigating circumstances existed prompting the Judge to have mercy upon Mr. Jordan’s Client.
