ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — Andrew Sample, former owner of Sample This Barbeque, was back in Chemung County court Friday to enter a plea.
Sample plead guilty to petit larceny, which is a class A misdemeanor. He will not face any jail time as long as he does not incur a new charge, cooperates with the investigation and does not miss any court dates.
He will be sentenced to probation and will also have to pay restitution. The sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 10, 2020.
Sample was arraigned back in January of this year facing charges that included grand larceny for allegedly failing to pay his employees. According to the Horseheads town court records, Sample owes $4,000 to $5,000 in back pay to multiple employees.
