Charges were brought against The Page after an unprovoked assault of Joshua Krantz, 24, of Dover, who died from being punched in the head by another patron on April 5, according to prosecutors.
Boffetti said his office will submit a request to a judge, so that the fine money goes into Rockingham County’s general fund.
Roughly $139,890 in fines and seized cash from liquor and gambling prosecutions have been placed into the Rockingham County Attorney Forfeiture Account since August 2005, according to court and county bank records.
The police department sent a letter to Rockingham County officials this week, claiming they are legally entitled to a portion of the funds, according to Boffetti and county commissioners.
A state law (RSA 179:61) does allow an agency that institutes the prosecution to reap such fines, but Boffetti said it was the county attorney’s office, not the police, that pursued the case.
“The plea negotiations were done by this office. The practice as you know was that the money went into the forfeiture account, but that’s not going to happen under any circumstance.”
He said county commissioners may be able to re-allocate a portion of the money to another law enforcement agency.
