INDICE DE GALERIAS
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A Stearns County jury has found a Freeport organic egg producer guilty on food-handling and egg-storage charges.
Jurors found Alvin Schlangen guilty on all five charges Thursday.
Schlangen had resisted demands from the Minnesota Department of Agriculture that he get a license, refrigerate eggs, and package and label his food accurately.
Schlangen contended he's not in the business of selling food commercially and doesn't need the license.
The St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/13oIbj5) reports Schlangen will spend the next year on probation and has to pay a $300 fine.
Schlangen won a Hennepin County jury verdict in September that found he did not violate state restrictions on the sale of raw milk. In Stearns County, a charge against Schlangen for selling raw milk was dismissed.
The defense is considering an appeal.
