Burke had been charged with conspiracy to distribute more than 1,000 kilograms of weed, but charges were reduced because of the guilty plea.

Burke is facing a minimum of five years in prison, and a maximum of 40 years. He'll also forfeit significant assets, including $660,000 in cash, plus another $15,000 that was seized in October 2010, a North Bergen, N.J. property, and a 2010 BMW 750.
