Jarrettsville woman accused of bestiality has case dismissed

The case of a Jarrettsville woman, who was a behavioral specialist with Harford County Public Schools and who was accused of bestiality, has been dismissed after the Harford County State's Attorney's Office decided not to prosecute her.

Stephanie Mikles, 46, had been charged with "unnatural or perverted practice" from a 2008 investigation in which she was investigated for alleged child pornography and sexual abuse of a minor. On Oct. 21, the Harford County State's Attorney's office declined to prosecute the case, according to online records. The same day, Mikles' lawyer, Leslie Gladstone filed a petition to have the case expunged. It has not yet been approved.

Mikles agreed to not work for the board of education, to not work with children and to continue psychological treatment in exchange for having the case not being prosecuted, assistant state's attorney Lisa Marts said.
