Prison Sentence for Robbery Case

Darick Rudolph Jordan was sentenced to 11 years in prison as a Habitual Felony Offender and a
Prison Releasee Re-offender for a robbery in Fort Myers. Jordan was adjudicated guilty for one
count each of: Attempted Robbery, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Flee/Elude a
Law Enforcement Officer with Lights and Sirens, and Resisting without Violence. He was also
adjudicated guilty of two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

In May of 2019, Jordan robbed a woman in front of her two young daughters as they were
walking down a street. Jordan then fled. An officer with the Fort Myers Police Department who
was patrolling the area, saw a car with dark tint that also matched the description of the suspect’s
vehicle. Jordan did not immediately stop. He then pulled over, jumped out of his car, and ran.
The officer began a foot pursuit and caught him.

This plea agreement alleviates the victim and young witnesses from having to go through a trial.
Assistant State Attorney Erin Hughes handled the case.
