    An owner of a butcher shop in New Hampshire has pleaded guilty to not giving money from a fundraiser to a charity.

    The Meat House held a charitable event in 2013 for the benefit of the Chaplain Emergency Relief Fund. The money was going to benefit veterans.

    Attorney General Joseph Foster said Justin Rosberg, co-owner of the business, failed to pay the funds. He pleaded guilty Thursday in Seabrook to one count of misapplication of property.

    Rosberg's one-year sentence was suspended for two years, conditioned on payment of nearly $14,000 in restitution.

    Another co-owner, Jason Parent, was indicted earlier this month on charges of theft and misapplication of property. He's scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
