Jeremy Wade Jordan Sentenced in U.S. District Court

The United States Attorney’s Office announced that during a federal court session in Great Falls, on September 27, 2010, before U.S. District Judge Sam E. Haddon, JEREMY WADE JORDAN, a 30-year-old resident of Great Falls, appeared for sentencing. JORDAN was sentenced to a term of:

  • Prison: 45 months
  • Special Assessment: $100
  • Supervised Release: 3 years

JORDAN was sentenced in connection with his guilty plea to being a felon-in-possession of a firearm.

In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Carl E. Rostad, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:

In 2010, JORDAN was on supervised release for a January 2008 federal conviction for being a felon-in-possession.

In the afternoon of April 2, 2010, law enforcement officers searched JORDAN’‘s residence. During the search, they located a Taurus .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun, a loaded Smith and Wesson .38 caliber semi-automatic pistol, and various rounds of ammunition.

Before the firearms were found, JORDAN admitted to his probation officer that he had a firearm in the residence, which the officer, with JORDAN’s directions, located in a hall closet. This firearm was the Taurus .38 revolver. The probation officer alerted the police officers on site. A second probation officer discovered a loaded .45 caliber pistol. JORDAN told the probation officers that everything that they had found in the apartment belonged to him.

Because there is no parole in the federal system, the truth in sentencing guidelines mandate that JORDAN will likely serve all of the time imposed by the court. In the federal system, JORDAN does have the opportunity to earn a sentence reduction for good behavior. However, this reduction will not exceed 15% of the overall sentence.

The investigation was a cooperative effort between the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Great Falls Police Department.
