Raw Milk Court Appearance 03 Jan 13

A Freeport farmer acquitted on charges of selling raw milk in Hennepin County is asking to have similar charges dismissed in Stearns County. Organic egg producer Alvin Schlangen has filed a motion to dismiss 3 of the six counts against him in Stearns County. He’s scheduled to be in court on for the charges today (THU). In October, a Hennepin County jury found Schlangen not guilty of selling raw milk, operating without a food handler’s license and handling adulterated food. Schlangen faces those three charges in Stearns County as well as three other misdemeanors. His legal battles have become a rallying point for raw milk advocates. No trial date has been set.
