A Nebraska man has been convicted of selling misbranded meat to the Omaha public school system.
U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Gilg said in a news release Friday that 63-year-old Paul Rosberg, of Wausa, was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment. He also received one year of supervised release and was fined more than $8,000.
Prosecutors say Rosberg supplied about 2,650 pounds of ground beef to the Omaha public school system in October 2011. Rosberg, as owner of Nebraska Finest Meats in Randolph, told officials that the meat was federally inspected.
Officials say the meat was not federally inspected. Federal agents later intercepted all the meat before it was served to students.
