Maryland School Employee Stephanie Mikles Indicted for ‘Unnatural and Perverted’ Act with Dog
A Maryland school employee has been suspended from her job following accusations of bestiality.
The Baltimore Sun reports that 45-year-old Stephanie Mikles of Jarrettsville was arrested and charged with unnatural and perverted sexual practices. According to the Examiner, Mikles, who has a master’s degree in counseling and spent almost 4 years advising special education teachers as a behavior specialist for Harford County Public Schools, had sexual intercourse with a dog on multiple occasions in 2008. Investigators searching Mikles’ home allegedly found videos of the woman engaging in sexual intercourse with a dog.
Harford County State’s Attorney Joseph Cassilly told reporters on Thursday that allegations of bestiality were brought to the attention of local police late last year or early this year.
Mikles was released on a $5,000 bond following her indictment. If convicted of the charges against her, Mikles could face up to 10 years in prison. She is the latest in a string of people to be accused of having bestial relations with dogs in recent months.
