Former barbecue restaurant owner pleads guilty to petit larceny
ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) – The owner of a former Horseheads barbecue restaurant has pleaded guilty to petit larceny charges.
Andrew Sample, who used to own “Sample This BBQ”, will face a year of probation and must pay restitution. He will not have any jail time so long as he does not commit any other crimes, attends all of his court dates and cooperates with the investigation.
In January, he was initially charged with two counts of grand larceny, two counts of petit larceny and eight counts of issuing a bad check after being accused of not paying the employees of his restaurant.
His probation hearing is scheduled for January 10.
