OMAHA, Neb. (KTIV) -
The owners of Nebraska's Finest Meats, Paul and Kelly Rosberg, have both signed plea agreements in the case of selling uninspected meat to the Omaha Public Schools.

Kelly Rosberg's charges was reduced to a misdemeanor.

The Rosbergs admitted to selling 2,600 pounds of ground beef falsely marked with a USDA inspection label from their small meat locker operation in Randolph, Nebraska.

The sale was intended for the Omaha Schools. The product was originally intended to be used for school lunches.

OPS noticed upon arrival the meat was not up to district specifications and never paid for the product, which was later destroyed under USDA observation.

Kelly Rosberg's original charges were felonies, as were her husband Paul's.  

Kelly Rosberg pleaded down to a misdemeanor charge of giving misinformation.

As a part of Paul Rosberg's plea agreement, prosecutors dropped a charge that he tried to have two of the witnesses in his case killed. They also dropped an obstruction of justice charge.

He'll be sentenced December 20 on charges of selling misbranded meat and faces up to 18 months in prison.

Kelly Rosberg's sentencing is set for January 24 of 2014. At that time, she'll face a maximum prison sentence of one year and a maximum fine of $100,000.
