Marine Corps Prosecutor Fred Jordan Announces Candidacy for District Attorney

Marine Corps prosecutor and House Majority Leader Fred Jordan announced today that he intends to run for Tulsa County District Attorney, seeking the post being vacated by outgoing District Attorney Tim Harris.

“I am excited and ready to serve Tulsa County as our next District Attorney,” said Jordan. “My experience as a Marine Corps officer and chief military prosecutor, along with my legal experience, has prepared me to be an effective District Attorney for the people of Tulsa County.”

After graduating from law school, Jordan served on active duty as a Captain and Judge Advocate in the United States Marine Corps. He was assigned to Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina and served as the station’s Military Justice Officer and Chief Prosecutor.

In addition, Jordan is a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and served as the Deputy Staff Judge Advocate in Guantanamo Bay where he advised commanders on military justice and international and operational law issues.

“The District Attorney’s office is on the front lines of the battle for freedom and safety,” said Jordan. “I believe the District Attorney serves as a key guardian of our Constitutional rights as Americans, working to protect our God-given liberties and bring justice to those who jeopardize the safety of our communities. I am dedicated to protecting the citizens of Tulsa County by vigorously prosecuting those who break the law, and I will strictly uphold and protect the Constitution.”

Jordan currently serves as the House Majority Leader in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, representing the areas of Jenks, Bixby and South Tulsa. He was first elected in 2006 and previously served as the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee in 2011 and 2012, and the Vice Chairman of the Judiciary Committee in 2009 and 2010.

During his service in the legislature, Jordan has been directly involved in significant legislation dealing with the courts, civil procedure, criminal law and procedure, public safety, and worker’s compensation.

In addition to serving in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, Jordan maintains an active civil and criminal litigation practice in Tulsa.

Jordan and his wife, Kara Spahn Jordan, reside in Jenks.
