Nemeckay Responds to Grand Jury Indictment

The local attorney for Park City businessman Tim Nemeckay has replied to the federal grand jury indictment handed down against him in late August.


As we reported, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Salt Lake filed a five-count indictment against Nemeckay, alleging that he swindled about 100 investors with a purported plan to build a brewery and restaurant in Park City. The indictment claims that while he raised some $2.7 million, a majority of the funds went for his own use.


Nemeckay’s attorney, Patricia Geary Glenn, told KPCW in an e-mail that they will vigorously refute the unfounded allegations. She said they will do it in court, “not in a one-sided statement of the sort released by the U.S. attorney—that resorts to shop worn adages about wolves and sheep apparel.” 


She said that the brand of Nemeckay’s company Mine Shaft Brewing, and his dedication to the company are fixtures in the Park City sports community.” 


She concluded, “The one line the public should take away from the DOJ press release is the one about the presumption of innocence afforded to him while he goes through this process and is vindicated.”


Nemeckay is scheduled to make his first appearance in federal court on September 24th.
