A Wisconsin dairy farmer has been acquitted on three of four charges in a raw milk trial.

According to the Milwaukee (Wis.) Journal-Sentinel, a jury found Vernon Hershberger guilty on just one charge – violating a holding order placed on his products following a 2010 raid. Hershberger now faces up to a year in jail and $10,000 in fines. The sentencing date is yet to be announced.

The jury found Hershberger innocent on three other charges, including operating a dairy farm and processing facility without proper licenses and operating an unlicensed retail store that sold raw dairy products. Click here to read more.
