Prison Sentence for Crimes Against the Elderly

Kristin Nicole Jordan, 40, was sentenced to 16 months in prison followed by 60 months of
probation after being adjudicated guilty of Exploitation of an Elderly or Disabled Person, a
Second-Degree Felony.

The defendant was employed as an assistant to an attorney in Lee County who was the trust
attorney for the victim. The law firm was responsible for maintaining the bank and credit
card accounts of the victim, as well as paying her bills.

From October 1, 2017 through April 1, 2019, while employed by the attorney, Jordan used the
victim’s credit cards charging $42,276.67. The charges were discovered and the Lee County
Sheriff’s Office Economic Crimes Unit was contacted to investigate, which led to the arrest of
the defendant.

During the pendency of probation, Jordan is not allowed to work with the elderly, be a named
legal guardian or trustee, or have signatory. She is also not allowed to use authority on another
person’s business or personal account, without permission of the court.

Full restitution of $42,276.67 has been made to the family of the victim. The victim passed away
last month at the age of 97.

Assistant State Attorney Jessica Horowitz, of the State Attorney’s Office Economic Crimes Unit,
prosecuted the case.
