  • 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 three of the six counts against him in Stearns County. Schlangen and his attorney are scheduled to argue that motion Thursday before Judge Thomas Knapp.
    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. He also faces three other misdemeanors.
    Schlangen's legal battles have become a rallying point for raw milk advocates.
    The St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/UmJDKs) reports no trial date has been set for the Stearns County case.
