Circuit Judge Catherine C. Hammond said the duration of Jordan’s pilferage — from 2005 until 2007 — and the number of victims — at least 20 families — warranted a substantial prison sentence. Sentencing guidelines ranged from two to five years.
Jordan, who had been free on bond, was taken from the courtroom in handcuffs.
