Binghamton Man Pleads Guilty to Gun and Drug Charges

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Dupray Jordan, age 33, of Binghamton, pled guilty yesterday to possessing fentanyl and methamphetamine with intent to distribute, possessing a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking and possessing a firearm and ammunition as a convicted felon, announced United States Attorney Carla B. Freedman; John B. DeVito, Special Agent in Charge of the New York Field Division of the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and Sergeant Daniel VanWie of the Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force (BCSIUTF).

In pleading guilty yesterday, Jordan admitted that he possessed for distribution methamphetamine and fentanyl, as well as a loaded .38 caliber revolver in a Binghamton apartment on Nov. 12, 2021. Jordan threw the gun to the ground as police entered to execute a search warrant at the Binghamton apartment on that date. The defendant was at that time a convicted felon, having previously been convicted in New York state court of Assault in the Second Degree.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 8, 2024, in Syracuse, at which time Jordan faces up to 20 years in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and fentanyl as well as a fine of up to one million dollars. He faces a consecutive sentence of at least five years and up to life in prison. a fine of up to $250,000 for possession of a firearm in connection with drug trafficking and up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for possession of a firearm and ammunition as a convicted felon. He will also be sentenced to a post-incarceration term of supervised release of at least three years and up to life. A defendant’s sentence is imposed by a judge based on the particular statute the defendant is charged with violating, the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other factors.

This case is being investigated by the Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force, consisting of members of the City of Binghamton Police Department, the Broome County Sheriff’s Department and the Johnson City Police Department; ATF; and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. The Broome County Metro SWAT Team assisted in the execution of the search warrant.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Southwick is prosecuting this case as part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and gun violence, and to make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. On May 26, 2021, the Department of Justice launched a violent crime reduction strategy strengthening PSN based on these core principles: fostering trust and legitimacy in our communities, supporting community-based organizations that help prevent violence from occurring in the first place, setting focused and strategic enforcement priorities and measuring the results.
