Area businessman charged with trying to hire a hit man


HARTINGTON — A Cedar County business man, facing charges in an upcoming federal trial, is accused of trying to hire someone to kill two key witnesses against him.

Two of the witnesses are Cedar County residents: Roger Anderson, Coleridge and Leanay Petersen, Laurel. A third witness is Randy Teboe, address unknown, according to court records.

In the last year, Paul Rosberg, a Wausa man who owned and operated Nebraska’s Finest Meats, Randolph, has filed various lawsuits against the three individuals, accusing them of making false statements which he believes caused federal charges on federal meat inspection violations to be filed against him in 2012.

Rosberg is best known as the man who created the Nebraska Party. He and family members have made several runs for statewide office as Nebraska Party candidates.

The indictment in the U.S. District Court, Omaha, was unsealed Friday, just a few days after Rosberg was arrested on charges of solicitation to commit a crime of violence.

Rosberg was arrested when he appeared in Court in Omaha Sept. 11.
