WI officials motion to revoke Hershberger's bail


BARABOO (WKOW) -- Wisconsin officials asked a Sauk County judge to send Loganville dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger to jail for breaking his bail conditions.

On May 31st, the state filed a motion to revoke Hershberger's bail.  The motion cited a Capital Times report quoting Hershberger saying he continued to sell raw milk and other products after the state ordered him to stop.

The State Journal reports the terms of his bail specify not to sell or process dairy products without a license.

On May 25th, a jury acquitted Hershberger on three charges of producing, processing, and selling milk without a proper state license.  He was found guilty of one count of violating a holding order on products on his farm after a raid in 2010.

Hershberger's attorney says the motion is disappointing.
