People v. Van Dyke.
The Presiding Disciplinary Judge approved the parties’ conditional admission of misconduct in this reciprocal discipline matter and suspended Jason Lee Van Dyke (attorney registration number 47445) for 18 months, six months to be served and 12 months to be stayed upon the successful completion of a one-year period of probation. The suspension took effect June 19, 2020.
This reciprocal discipline case arose out of discipline imposed in Texas. On April 30, 2020, the Wise County Texas District Court accepted an agreement to a partially probated suspension tendered by respondent and the Texas Commission for Lawyer Discipline. Van Dyke’s discipline was premised on his entry of a nolo contendere plea to criminal charges of making a false police report.
Through this conduct, Van Dyke engaged in conduct constituting grounds for reciprocal discipline under CRCP 251.21.
The case file is public per CRCP 251.31.
