Corporation that owns closed Portsmouth nightspot rejects plea offer
Matthew Stachowske, a lawyer for the corporation that owns the page, filed a petition in Rockingham County Superior Court on Monday, asking a judge to dismiss charges of illegally serving alcohol to patrons in a restricted area.
The two indictments against New Adventure LLC, the corporation that owns The Page, were returned by a grand jury in May.
"There is no law, let alone crime, against a licensee's service or consumption of alcohol on a 'dance floor' in the city of Portsmouth," Stachowske said in a court motion.
A judge on Monday set an Oct. 28 trial date.
The defense also requested a view for the jury that would require them to travel to the now-shuttered business at 172 Hanover St. in Portsmouth prior to the beginning of the trial.
Krantz was found dead in his apartment hours after he was struck by Zachary O'Neill, according to police.
O'Neill is currently jailed on a first-degree assault charge, awaiting possible indictment.
The Page shut its doors permanently June 21 as part of an agreement with the city ahead of a hearing before the state's Liquor Commission.
