NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. (WPRI) – Rhode Island State Rep. Daniel Gordon has been in and out of Massachusetts jail cells since 1999, according to records obtained by the Target 12 Investigators.
Gordon served nearly six months over a five-year period at the Bristol County House of Correction in North Dartmouth, Mass., according to records from the Bristol County Sheriff’s office.
Gordon, 42, of Portsmouth, served four months in jail after being convicted of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in 1999, records reveal. He was back in 2003 for a one-month stay on another assault and battery charge and again in 2004 after being charged with attempted murder, the sheriff’s office said. That year he was also held on an outstanding warrant for a “larceny of a motor vehicle” charge issued by police in Falmouth, Mass.
