  1. Keon Jordan, born in 1997, has two pages of crimes on Casenet, going back to the time he was 18 or 19 years old. I wonder what his juvenile record looks like.
    In 2017, Judge Crane, a Republican, gave him 4 years in DOC for felony Tampering with a Motor Vehicle but allowed a Suspended Execution of Sentence and just 5 years of probation. Why has his probation not been revoked and immediate execution of sentence to DOC?
    For the April 2020 crimes listed in the article, all felonies, including felon in possession of a firearm, his bail was reduced. The story does not give any detail on this so I looked it up on Casenet. Judge Kimberly Shaw, a Democrat, over the State’s objection, reduced the $100,000 cash only bond to $50,000 surety bond which he posted by a bail bonding company to get out of jail.
    He is then charged with stealing. Felons in possession of firearms with long track records of committing crimes need to be in prison, not getting reduced bail. Obviously, our judicial system is broken.
