Jordan Gets Minimal Prison Time

A former bank employee in Lauderdale County was sentenced in federal court for embezzlement.

52-year-old Mary Jaquita Jordan of Enterprise, Miss., will have to spend 60 days in prison and then be under three years supervised probation after she's released.

Jordan was ordered to re-pay $61,000 she took from the vault at Citizens National Bank from 2006 to 2008, when she was a customer service representative.

Jordan pleaded guilty to the charge in September 2009.

    While all of you are talking that ____about her, wouldn't you do whatever you had to to try and save your home for your kids if you had a WORTHLESS spouse? If not, your pitiful...

    Jordan was sentenced in federal court. Don't blame Meridian folks for that. They were not in charge of this one. Look to the federal court in Jackson. They dropped the ball this time.

    Something is definitely fishy with that sentence. Get busted with a pound of weed and you go to jail for 5 years. Steal $61k from a bank and do 60 days?

    No, her sentence is so minimal because she is a caucasion female. Ok Meridian, don't act like there is no racism still going on in the Queen City.

    Serves her right----but I am disturbed about the sentencing. I don't understand why there is such a short prison sentence for stealing $61,000. She deserved much more. Or are the prisons too crowded?
