Co-Owner of The Meat House Pleads Guilty to Misapplication of Property for Non-Payment to Veterans' Charity - State v. Justin Rosberg

Attorney General Joseph A. Foster announces that Justin Rosberg, co-owner of The Meat House, entered a guilty plea this morning in the 10th Circuit Court in Seabrook to one count of misapplication of property for violating his fiduciary duty to pay funds that The Meat House raised for a charitable cause to benefit veterans. In July, 2013, The Meat House held a charitable event for the benefit of the Chaplain Emergency Relief Fund. Mr. Rosberg, as co-owner, failed to pay the charity the funds that had been raised.

The court sentenced the defendant to serve 12 months at the House of Corrections, with all of the sentence suspended for a period of 2 years, conditioned on payment of $13,882.21 in restitution to the charity. The defendant must make his first restitution payment within 30 days and regular monthly payments thereafter, with proof of each payment to the Attorney General's Office.

Earlier this month, the Rockingham County Grand Jury indicted the other co-owner, Jason Parent, with one count of felony theft and one count of misapplication of property involving non-payment of charitable funds to the same charity.
