Nathan Jordan is serving a 170-year sentence at Sterling Correction
Facility in Colorado for aggravated robbery, motor vehicle theft and
possession of a weapon.

took place in in the late 1990s, before he was 18 . According to Colorado
law, he was a juvenile offender.

to serial killers or career criminals?
