Michael J. Moore, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, announces the sentencing of Joseph Wiley Jordan, age 64, a resident of Dougherty County, Georgia, on January 30, 2013, in Albany, Georgia, by the Honorable W. Louis Sands, United States District Judge for the Middle District of Georgia.

On June 4, 2012, Jordan was found guilty by a jury on four felony counts: count one, conspiracy to make bribes or kickbacks to a bank officer; and counts three, four, and five, substantive acts of bribes and kickbacks to a bank officer.

Defendant Jordan was sentenced to 15 months in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons and two years of supervised release after serving his sentence. Defendant Jordan was allowed to remain on bond pending his surrender to the Bureau of Prisons.

The case was jointly investigated by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Secret Service. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jim Crane for the Middle District of Georgia.

“This prosecution was successful because of the cooperation of our law enforcement partners and the hard work of the agents and the prosecutor assigned to the case,” said U.S. Attorney Michael Moore.

Inquiries regarding the case should be directed to Sue McKinney, Public Affairs Specialist, United States Attorney’s Office at (478) 621-2601.
