Hollywood Dillon Jordan Pleads in Prostitution Case to 27 Months & $1.4M for Bachelor Parties

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 1 – A California based movie producer, Dillon Jordan, was arrested and presented on July 15, 2021 on federal prostitution charges. Inner City Press live tweeted it, here (picked up by the UK Daily Mail) and below.

Now on September 1, 2022, Inner City Press live tweeted Jordan's guilty plea, with no appeal of any sentence below 28 months, and at least $1.4 million to be paid (forfeiture still being negotiated). Thread here:

OK - now Dillon Jordan is pleading guilty before SDNY Judge Cronan, says he has PTSD and dis-associative disorder. "I do as many sessions as I can." What is the plea deal?

Judge Cronan: Tell me about your employment for the last ten years. Dillon Jordan: I worked in film. Now in construction (?) Judge: Addictions? Jordan: None. Judge: Alcohol in the past 48 hours? Jordan: None. I'm nervous.

 Judge Cronan: I find you competent to plead guilty. Now Mr. Jordan I will explain the rights you are giving up...

 Judge Cronan: I have received a signed plea agreement dated today... You'll be pleading guilty to Count 1, conspiring to violate the Mann Act. AUSA: ...Transportation over state laws for an illegal sexual act.

 Judge Cronan: You agree to pay back $1,429,000? Dillon Jordan: I didn't receive all that. Defense lawyer: Let us have a break-out. [Long break]

Defense lawyer: He says that amount passed through him. You can ask again. Judge: Under the the consent order, $1,429,000 traceable to your offense? Jordan: Uh... yes.

 Judge: With reduction for acceptance of responsibility, offense level is 16. So guideline of 21 to 27 months. [He can't appeal any sentence below 28 months]

 Judge: Tell me what you did. Dillon Jordan: I agreed with one person for women to travel to engage in sexual activity. I can confirm in an email with another person, I told another person to pay for services at a bachelors' party, one in the SDNY.

Judge: I accept your guilty plea. Sentencing will be December 12 at 2 pm. Defense: We'd like it remote. Judge: Let's see where we are with COVID. [And CARES Act waivers - hope these are continued] 

Back on November 12, 2021 Jordan through counsel asked Judge Cronan for "a 60-day adjournment of the status conference scheduled for November 22," citing 130,000 pages and 50 emails.

Docketed on November 15, Jordan got it: "MEMO ENDORSEMENT as to Dillon Jordan on re: [20] LETTER MOTION filed by Dillon Jordan addressed to Judge John P. Cronan from Ilana Haramati, Esq. dated November 12, 2021 re: Request for Adjournment of Status Conference. ENDORSEMENT: The status conference scheduled for November 22, 2021 is adjourned to January 24, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. (Status Conference set for 1/24/2022 at 02:00 PM before Judge John P. Cronan. )"

  On June 21, 2020 Jordan - with the consent of the prosecutors - wrote in request to adjourn the motion schedule which was to begin June 24 to one to end on September 30, with the August 17 conference canceled, "to allow the parties time to continue ongoing plea negotiations." Full letter on Patreon here. Watch this site.

Back on March 28, Judge Cronan held a proceeding and Inner City Press live tweeted it here

The case is US v. Jordan, 21-cr-423 (Cronan)
