Man, 32, ordered back to prison for violating probation

October 29, 1998

A Westminster man was found guilty yesterday of violating probation on 1996 charges of battery and malicious destruction of property and was sentenced to serve the balance of a five-year prison sentence. Terry E. Burket Jr., 32, was convicted in January 1997 of driving over a lawn in Finksburg and knocking down the property owner. All but 18 months was suspended in favor of probation.

Burket violated probation, prosecutors said, by failing to pay $974 in restitution to the property owner and was convicted of an unrelated assault in June, after he had been released on probation in the earlier case. He was sentenced to two years in prison in that case.

Circuit Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr. imposed the balance of the original sentence and made it concurrent with any other sentence Burket is serving.

Police
