Here’s some solid, universally-applicable advice: Never have sex with dogs and never, ever photograph any sexuality activity between you and a dog.
With this helpful counsel firmly in mind, meet Stephanie Mikles, a behavioral specialist with the Harford County (Maryland) Schools who works mainly with special needs children.
A grand jury has indicted Mikles for “unnatural or perverted sexual practice,” reports WMAR-TV, the ABC affiliate in Baltimore. The indictment is short on details but it does allege that she had “sexual intercourse with a dog.”
The shocking evidence against Mikles, 45, also includes still photos.
The canine still lives with the teacher’s family in her home in bucolic Harford County.
The twisted acts allegedly occurred in August 2008. Throughout the entire month, says the New York Daily News, the teacher allegedly got busy in a variety of twisted ways with the family pet.
Sensibly enough, there is no statute of limitations in Maryland for bestiality, a misdemeanor punishable by up to 10 years in prison and fine of $1000.
Since the indictment, the Harford County Schools System has placed Mikles on administrative leave without pay. She has been an employee since 2009.
Investigators told WMAR they were looking for something else when they discovered incriminating evidence. However, it’s not clear what the initial search involved.
An attorney for Mikles told the station that she is innocent and is seeking to dismiss the charges.
At this time, she is out of jail on $5000 bond.
