The state’s motion to revoke Hershberger’s bail cites a Capital Times report Wednesday in which the Loganville dairy farmer is quoted as saying he continued to sell raw milk and other farm products after the state ordered him to stop. The terms of his bail specified that he not sell or process dairy products without a license. Yet he was aquitted by a jury of 12 of the licensure violation. Confused yet?

The just man's confidence in God in the midst of persecutions.
 Unto the end. A psalm for David.  In the Lord I put my trust: how then do you say to my soul: Get thee away from hence to the mountain like a sparrow?  For, lo, the wicked have bent their bow; they have prepared their arrows in the quiver; to shoot in the dark the upright of heart.  For they have destroyed the things which thou hast made: but what has the just man done?  The Lord is in his holy temple, the Lord' s throne is in heaven. His eyes look on the poor man: his eyelids examine the sons of men.
 The Lord trieth the just and the wicked: but he that loveth iniquity hateth his own soul.  He shall rain snares upon sinners: fire and brimstone and storms of winds shall be the portion of their cup.  For the Lord is just, and hath loved justice: his countenance hath beheld righteousness.

- State looking to revoke bail for raw milk farmerLoganville farmer Vernon Hershberger this week stands behind the counter where members of a buyers club that he operates can pick up organic items like raw milk. Last week Hershberger was found not guilty on three licensing charges filed by the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
State law officials on Friday asked a Sauk County judge to send raw milk farmer Vernon Hershberger to jail for breaking conditions of his bail.
The state’s motion to revoke Hershberger’s bail cites a Capital Times report Wednesday in which the Loganville dairy farmer is quoted as saying he continued to sell raw milk and other farm products after the state ordered him to stop. The terms of his bail specify that he not sell or process dairy products without a license.
“It is a concern that any defendant would engage in and openly admit to actions which clearly disregard the court-ordered conditions of release (on bail),” wrote assistant attorneys general Eric Defort and Phillip Ferris.
Hershberger, 41, was acquitted May 25 by a Sauk County jury on three charges of producing, processing and selling milk without proper state licenses. But he was found guilty of one count of violating a holding order on products on his farm after a 2010 raid by agents from the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
That meant Hershberger had to continue to operate under bail conditions set in January 2012 by Sauk County Circuit Court Judge Guy Reynolds that included an order not to sell any food or milk from his store. The state asked Reynolds to hear the motion Monday.
Hershberger’s attorney, Glenn Reynolds, called the motion disappointing because the bail terms he’s accused of violating are the same activities that led to the charges of which he was acquitted.
“It seems vindictive in my view,” he said. “He goes to trial and wins and now they want to put him in jail? What is the point of this sort of motion?”
Department of Justice spokeswoman Dana Brueck declined to comment on the motion.
Reynolds, who was out of the area Friday, was skeptical the hearing would take place Monday.
“Every single rule says that you have five days before you have a motion hearing,” Reynolds said.
He said he had not seen the state’s motion and hadn’t talked to Hershberger about it.
“If they want to revoke his bail and put him in jail, they’ll have to do it at a hearing where we take evidence and not just focus on what was said in a newspaper article,” he added.
The Capital Times story Wednesday quoted Hershberger as saying that he never stopped
