SAUK COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Sauk County judge denies a request from a raw milk farmer to throw out his case.
Vernon Hershberger of Loganville is set to go to trial in September on charges including unlicensed milk production.
In his motion to dismiss, the Amish farmer claims the criminal complaint against him was invalid. He says this is because the state official who signed the document had not taken an oath of office and was not a "private citizen" who was injured as a result of the alleged crime.
Sauk County Circuit Court Judge Guy Reynolds says he is not aware of any such law and Hershberger failed to cite one.
