OMAHA - A Randolph man who is already awaiting a federal trial next month is now facing accusations that he attempted to hire hit men to take out witnesses to the case.
Last September, Paul Rosberg, who once ran for governor of Nebraska, along with his wife Kelly Rosberg were indicted for allegedly selling non-inspected and misbranded meat to the Omaha Public Schools. The Rosberg’s business, Nebraska’s Finest Meats, was closed down after the indictment. Then on September 1 of this year, Rosberg allegedly asked Joseph Saul and Saul’s brother Jesse Knife is they would kill two of the witnesses for the federal case against him. Rosberg reportedly asked the two for their cooperation a second time, in which they declined. Rosberg then asked if they knew anyone who would. Rosberg was charged for soliciting a “crime of violence” when he appeared in U.S. District Court in Omaha on September 11th. Rosberg ran unsuccessfully for governor of Nebraska in 2002.
