People v. Burke

No. 20PDJ012.

July 2020


The Presiding Disciplinary Judge approved the parties’ stipulation concerning sanctions and publicly censured Terrence Dennis Burke (attorney registration number 41382), with conditions, effective July 1, 2020.

In a Denver District Court case, Burke pleaded guilty to criminal charges of trespass of an automobile with intent to commit the crime of theft (a class 6 felony). Burke received a deferred sentence and one year of probation and was assessed $388.50 in fines and costs. The criminal charges were premised on Burke unlawfully entering a van and driving the vehicle a short way. Burke did not have permission to enter or drive the vehicle.

Through this conduct, Burke violated Colo. RPC 8.4(b) (it is professional misconduct for a lawyer to commit a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer in other respects).

The case file is public per CRCP 251.31.
