Bourke completes sentence, is released from prison

Frederic Bourke served nearly a year as an inmate of Englewood Camp, a 165-bed minimum-security prison in the southwest suburbs of Denver, Colorado. He walked free on March 21.

Bourke, 67, was convicted in 2009 of conspiracy to violate the FCPA and lying to FBI agents.

His multiple appeals failed and in April 2013 the Supreme Court refused to review his case.

Bourke co-founded the Dooney & Bourke luxury handbag brand.

He was convicted by a federal jury in New York City of joining Viktor Kozeny’s conspiracy to bribe officials in Azerbaijan.

The DOJ said Bourke invested in Kozeny’s scheme despite knowing — or consciously disregarding — the risks that bribes could change hands.
