Judge told jury they were NOT allowed to vote with their conscience. WTF?
The charges were:
1 – distributing milk from his “Grazin’ Acres” dairy farm without a milk producer’s license VERDICT NOT GUILTY
2 – operating a retail food establishment without a state license VERDICT NOT GUILTY
3 – operating a dairy plant without a state license VERDICT NOT GUILTY
4 – violating a “hold order” placed on his dairy products after the state raided his farm. VERDICT GUILTY
Charge 4 is the charge with the biggest penalty with the maximum one year in jail and $10,000 in fines.
Overall this is a great day for private memberships and the RAW milk industry.
