Owners of The Page Restaurant were prepared to move forward with a no-contest plea on charges alleging an employee served alcohol on a basement-level dance floor where a bar patron allegedly leveled fatal blows to 24-year-old Joshua Krantz of Dover by punching him in the head.
The decision comes as The Page’s corporation, New Adventures LLC, prepares to liquidate much, if not all, of its assets inside the downtown restaurant.
O’Neill is expected to go on trial in Rockingham County Superior Court early next year.
Instead, their lawyer, Matthew Stachowske, asked a judge to dismiss the case, arguing that prosecutors had misinterpreted the law and weren’t allowed to bring criminal charges.
But Delker disagreed, concluding that jurors could determine whether the area of the dance floor was an area that the state Liquor Commission approved for serving alcohol.
Only the corporation is charged in the criminal case, not the individual owners, according to the indictments.
