A Maryland school district worker charged with bestiality involving her pet dog also allegedly had sex with a boy, it was revealed this week.

During a hearing Wednesday, a judge ruled that 46-year-old Stephanie Mikles will stand trial for allegedly having sex with the family pet between August 1 and August 31, 2008.

Mikles, who had worked for the Hartford County School District, was arrested after a search of her Jarrettsville home has reportedly yielded a CD containing a dozen photos of the woman having intercourse with the pooch.

The search was reportedly prompted by allegations made by a boy who claimed he had sex with Mikles, the Baltimore Sun reported.

According to the unnamed minor, after their encounter, the educator showed him a recording of sexual acts involving her pet dog.

Miss Mikles has yet to be charged in connection to the alleged child sex abuse.   

The 46-year-old defendant, who had been employed as a behavioral specialist, working with special education teachers, was placed on unpaid administrative leave. On Wednesday, a district spokesperson said that Mikles no longer works for the school system.  

In the course of the hearing, Mikles’ attorney, Leslie Gladstone, unsuccessfully argued that the charge of ‘unnatural or perverted practice’ is too vague and was rendered unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court

Gladstone maintained that the charge in question was designed only to punish people for practices seen as ‘abhorrent morally and religiously.’

‘If my client was charged with cruelty to animals, there may be an issue there,’ he said.

Judge Robert Dugan also dismissed a motion filed by Gladstone to supress the photos seized from Mikles’ home.

Allegations of bestiality against Mikles came to light in 2008 when she was investigated for child pornography and sexual abuse of a minor.

In Maryland there is no statute of limitations for bestiality charges so authorities were able to press charges as soon as they discovered the evidence.

The boy had told child advocates with the Hartford County that he had sex with Mikles and was later shown depictions of her engaging in sexual acts with her dog.

Acting on that information, officers served Mikles with a search warrant and seized a CD from her home, which reportedly contained 12 photos believed to have been taken by a third party of the 46-year-old school employee having sex with an animal.

The defense attorney claimed that officers with the Child Advocacy Center violated the search warrant’s instructions by failing to inspect the images in a lab. 

Mikles is expected to go on trial in August. If convicted of the bestiality charge, she could face up to 10 years in prison and ordered to pay a fine of up to $10,000.

In May, local TV station ABC2 reported that the dog at the center of the bestiality case still lived with Mikles.

  1. The looks of this ladies photo … I would say it was cruelty to to the poor animal. But then maybe the dog covered her head and thought poodle!
