Rubashkin acquittal

In case you missed the news, Sholom Rubashkin has been acquitted of 67 counts of child labor law violations. I'm not really fluent in the laws, or the details of the case, but my understanding is that although his plant did employ child laborers, Rubashkin wasn't legally responsible for it. If that's the law, and he didn't break it, kol hakovod, and I'm glad he was acquitted.

Now, things get interesting. Lots of people are deeply invested in the idea that the Iowa courts are made up of inveterate anti Semites. One blogger even called Rubaskin's fraud trial, the Dreyfuss Affair of our time, or something like that. 
So how do we explain this acquittal?

(1) The fraud trial was prosecuted by Jew haters. The people running the labor trial are philo Semites. I mean duh.
(2) All of them are anti Semites.  Through the power of our prayers and acts of charity we were able to defeat them. Baruch Hashem!
(3) This is an orchestrated anti Semitic plot to throw us off the scent. By acquitting Rubashkin in the child labor trial, they've blunted out claims of antisemitism. Now they can do as they please to poor Sholom in the other case. 

Anything else?
