Jordan Fishman Wants Prison Delay

Sarah Andrew


Two weeks before he's supposed to report to federal prison to serve a 15-month sentence, Jordan Fishman, the convicted Massachusetts-based drug formulator who made illicit substances that were later injected into racehorses, asked the judge to delay his reporting date by one month.

The reason? More than 2 1/2 months after his sentencing, the Bureau of Prisons still hasn't told Fishman which facility he's supposed to turn himself in to May 9.

Fishman also wants the judge to consider a pandemic-related health concern that would give him an extra month of freedom.

Patrick Jouyce, Fishman's attorney, articulated his client's concerns in a one-page letter filed Apr. 25 in United States District Court (Southern District of New York).

“I also regret to inform the Court that Jordan's ex-wife, with whom he works in close proximity at his business, has just contracted COVID-19 and in all likelihood, Defendant has as well even though as of today, he tested negative. For these reasons, Defendant respectfully requests that the Court adjourn Jordan's surrender date until June 9, 2022.

Back in October, Fishman, 64, had pleaded guilty to one count of adulteration and misbranding of purportedly performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs).

Jordan Fishman is unrelated to–but had a professional working relationship with–Seth Fishman, the convicted veterinarian who is awaiting sentencing and faces 20 years in prison for his role in the horse-doping conspiracy.

Lisa Giannelli, an assistant to Seth Fishman, was supposed to go on trial at the same time as Seth Fishman back in January. But she had her case declared a mistrial after her attorney tested positive for COVID-19. Her new trial begins Apr. 27.
