ROB SCHULTZ | Wisconsin State Journal
State officials on Friday asked a Sauk County judge to send 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.

MADISON, Wis. – A man is accused of repeatedly shocking a male dance instructor with a stun gun, claiming the instructor was a “sinner” who “defiles married women.”
Kevin Johnson, 59, of Baraboo hastily arranged a dance lesson at the instructor’s Madison home and showed up with a stun gun and sledgehammer, prosecutors say in a complaint filed Tuesday.
A criminal complaint says Johnson told a detective that his church does not condone touching while dancing and that he was going to scare the instructor “and tell him to leave the women alone.”
The Wisconsin State Journal says the instructor told police that Johnson phoned for private dance lessons, and when he opened the door to his home, Johnson began to shock him repeatedly in the neck with the stun gun.
