Bellport man released without bail after DWI charge in deadly William Floyd Parkway crash

Posted: Updated:

A Bellport man has been charged with DWI and released without bail Monday following a car crash that killed a 27-year-old man on the William Floyd Parkway.

Jordan Randolph, 40, is accused of driving drunk and killing Jonathan Armand Flores-Maldonado Sunday.

Maldonado's cousins and aunt say they were seething at the arraignment. Prosecutors said in court that Randolph had been arrested and released on Jan. 1 for allegedly not having a court-ordered ignition interlock device in his car.

According to court records, Randolph has a history of drunk driving and a total of six felony convictions, six misdemeanor convictions, and five failures to appear in court on other cases.

Maldonado's family told News 12 he had just graduated from the University of Buffalo, was pursuing a career in medicine and was killed while driving an Uber to make extra money.

The prosecutor told the judge during the arraignment that he would've asked for a substantial amount of bail if the incident happened before Jan. 1. The prosecutor then requested that an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet be put on Randolph.

The judge denied the request, saying the new law does not allow him to issue the monitoring device either.

 

Randolph's prior convictions:

  • Third-degree attempted robbery in 1997, a felony
  • Endangering the welfare of a child in 1998, a misdemeanor
  • Second-degree assault in 1998, a felony
  • Second-degree assault in 1998, a felony
  • Third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance in 2002, a felony
  • DWI in 2011, a misdemeanor
  • Seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in 2013, a misdemeanor
  • DWI in 2016, an E felony
  • Third-degree possession of a forged instrument in 2016, a misdemeanor
  • Criminal contempt in 2017, a misdemeanor
  • Seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance in 2017, a misdemeanor
  • DWI in 2018, a D felony
