People v. Burke
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.
