“He [Jeremy Jordan] implies that he is new to the criminal system and that his serious crimes are, at heart, the result of an “accident” fueled by an alcohol problem he did not know he had. This is far from the truth.”
— Michael Schrunk, Multnomah County District Attorney
31-year old Jeremy Jordan, who was sentenced to 70 months in prison after being charged with hit-and-run and DUII in November 2008, is now reaching out to the public and the media to tell his side of the story.
In the early morning hours of May 10th, 2008 an intoxicated Jordan stole beer from a Safeway store clerk (who refused to sell it to him), sped out of a parking lot and struck Eric Davidson, who was biking down NE 69th near Fremont. Jordan did not stop to check on Davidson and was caught by police shortly thereafter.
Davidson — who was more heavily intoxicated than Jordan — sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury from which he will never fully recover (his wife kept a daily blog of his recovery).
