Torrington, Wyo. (by Denise Heilbrun-Ellis) April 24, 2020 — A former disbarred attorney and City of Torrington Municipal Judge Greg Knudsen, was charged with 10 counts in Goshen County Circuit Court on March 31, which was handled by Laramie County Judge Thomas Lee, rather than a Goshen County judge, and has a hearing set for May 21, at 2:30 p.m., to see if there is enough evidence for the case to move forward to district court.
Special prosecuting attorney for the case is Kevin Taheri for the Eighth Judicial District Court.
Knudsen, who had a private law practice in Torrington, is charged with three third degree sexual felony counts of assaulting women in his office according to court documents, and a felony count for burglary.
The Wyoming Supreme Court issued an order disbarring Torrington attorney Gregory L. Knudsen effective July 15, 2019. The order of disbarment stemmed from Knudsen’s conduct in entering into a consensual sexual relationship with a client; failing to withdraw from the client’s representation promptly upon entering into the sexual relationship; advising the client to conceal evidence of the relationship in the legal proceeding; and knowingly making a false statement of material fact to Bar Counsel regarding the existence of the sexual relationship after a complaint was filed with the Wyoming State Bar.
Along with the felonies, Knudsen is charged with six misdemeanor counts, five stalking and one unlawful contact.
Knudsen was set free on a recognizance bond, and is being represented by Casper attorney Craig Silva.
