Man Accidentally Grows Pot?

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) — A 73-year-old man who was given the first civil marijuana ticket in a Vermont town says he had planted some seeds he found in a box and "got spanked" by police after it grew into a pot plant.

William Reynolds was issued a $200 civil ticket by St. Johnsbury police after authorities seized a potted 2 ½-foot-tall marijuana plant from his Main Street apartment.

Police say they saw no indication Reynolds was a pot smoker or had other marijuana plants.

Reynolds tells the Caledonian Record ( ) he doesn't smoke marijuana and was "playing around" with the seeds he found.

He says he "did wrong" and won't contest the ticket.

Vermont decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana on July 1

"Clever" Escape Attempt Backfires

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say a 26-year-old man is in critical condition after falling 21 floors in the garbage chute of an apartment building in upstate New York after robbing a bank.
Police in Syracuse say Robin Gutheridge robbed a Chase Bank branch Thursday and fled on foot. 

Detectives learned he was seen entering an apartment building a few blocks away.
While officers searched the building, a maintenance worker told them he could hear someone calling for help from a garbage chute in the basement. Police say Gutheridge was found trapped near a compactor, with some of the bank's money with him.

Officers say they believe he had climbed into the chute on the 21st floor and fell to the basement.
A phone listing for Gutheridge couldn't be found. It couldn't immediately be determined if he had a lawyer.  It was unclear if he had been bathed at the hospital since his arrest.

Gun-Crazy, Swell-headed PA Police Chief to be Fired

GILBERTON, Pa. (AP) — Police Chief Mark Kessler expects to be fired for posting incendiary videos in which he ranted obscenely about the Second Amendment and liberals while spraying machine-gun fire with borough-owned weapons.
But Kessler, whose pro-gun videos have garnered hundreds of thousands of views online, has no intention of going away quietly.
With an Internet radio show, speaking invitations to gun rallies around the country and a newly formed "Constitution Security Force" that he claims already has chapters in 45 states, the 41-year-old coal miner-turned-cop said his message - that the federal government is too big, too powerful and wants to grab guns - is resonating with a segment of the public that believes as he does.
"The support has been overwhelming, both national and international," he said. "I find it truly amazing how many people finally said, 'You know what? This guy's right.'"
Friday is the last day of Kessler's 30-day suspension over what the Gilberton council has said was unauthorized use of the weapons. The council could decide his fate Friday night.
But if Kessler's worried about losing job, he's not showing it.
"If that's the price I got to pay for standing up for what I believe in, apparently for what a lot of Americans believe in, I'm willing to pay that price," said Kessler, speaking to The Associated Press at a gun range near Gilberton in northeast Pennsylvania.
If anything, his rhetoric has grown even more menacing.
This week, Kessler posted another potty-mouthed video in which he displayed paper targets with scary-looking clowns on them, dubbed "Eric" and "Danny." Those happen to be the first names of Council President Daniel Malloy and Vice President Eric Boxer, whom he has attacked on his website.
Patting an assault rifle, Kessler said, "This is the friend that Eric's going to meet today." After firing a volley at the target, he said, "Eric got a couple rounds to the head."
In an earlier video, Kessler savaged Secretary of State John Kerry as a "traitor" over a U.S.-backed international arms treaty. "COME AND TAKE IT!" he screamed, firing a machine gun.
Kessler said he posted that video and others like it partly out of frustration, and partly in an effort to get people to pay attention to an issue he holds dear: the erosion of Second Amendment and other constitutional rights.
"It was shock and awe," he said. "I could have went out there and did a nice video ... and nobody would've gave it a second look."
Now that he's achieved a measure of notoriety for his obscenity-filled rants against government tyranny and people he calls "libtards," Kessler said he worries the federal government will try to silence him. He predicted chaos if that happens.
"God help them if something should happen to me," he said. "I believe that could spark the next American Revolution."
Kessler insisted he's "not calling for anybody to take up arms against our government."
But he also warned the government would be in a fight if it ever tried to take away his guns.
"I would resist," he said. "I'd fight for freedom, and if it cost me my life, then so be it."
The FBI said it's aware of the police chief and his videos.
Kessler said he decided to speak out after the Obama administration began a push for new gun laws in response to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
Most Gilberton residents approached by the AP this week declined to speak on the record.
But some, like Bill Yohn, said it's hard to reconcile the lawman they know with the profane, provocative figure on the videos.
"If I had a problem, he was quick to come," Yohn said. "He was completely different from how he appeared on the videos. It was like night and day."
Kessler, who is married with four children and two grandchildren, acknowledged how the videos portray him.
"I kind of look scary," he said. "I've been labeled the scariest police chief in the country."

Florida Officials Mimic Florida Citizens

3rd Fla. mayor arrested within the past month

August 28, 2013 
MIAMI (AP) — The mayor of Homestead was hauled away from his home Wednesday in handcuffs on corruption charges, including accepting illegal compensation, becoming the third mayor of a Miami-Dade County city to be arrested in the past month.
Steve Bateman, 58, was secretly being paid $125 an hour as a consultant by a health care company seeking city and county approval for a sewer connection so it could build a clinic in Homestead, said Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle.
Bateman lobbied his own city officials and County Mayor Carlos Gimenez without disclosing his financial arrangement with Community Health Care of South Florida Inc., a non-profit firm known as CHI, said Fernandez Rundle.
"It's another very sad day for the people of Miami-Dade County," Fernandez Rundle told reporters. "At no time did Bateman disclose that these contacts were done for a private employer. That should have been done."
All told, Bateman was paid $3,625 by CHI for his work, although the company had authorized as much as $120,000 in payments for a year of work, according to an arrest affidavit. Bateman was jailed on $21,500 bail but scheduled for release later Wednesday. He is charged with two felonies for accepting illegal compensation as well as several misdemeanors, including unregistered lobbying.
His attorney, Ben Kuehne, said Bateman was "shocked by his sudden and unexpected arrest."
"He looks forward to his vindication. He has served the community for many years in an honest, dependable manner," Kuehne added in an email. "He has honestly earned every dollar he received through hard work and dedication to the public."
Bateman was first elected mayor of Homestead in 2009 and re-elected in 2011. He is seeking re-election again this year, but has been suspended from office by Gov. Rick Scott until the charges are resolved.
Earlier this month, Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi and Sweetwater Mayor Manuel Marono, along with two lobbyists, were arrested on federal corruption charges in an FBI sting operation. Authorities say Pizzi and Marono accepted thousands of dollars in kickbacks in exchange for supporting applications for federal grants that were never to be used for their intended purposes. Pizzi and Marono, who have been suspended from office, insist they are innocent.
Those arrests followed tax evasion charges in May against former Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina and his wife, Raizi, who are accused of failing to report income on high-interest loans and other business interests. The couple have also said they are innocent. Robaina once unsuccessfully ran for Miami-Dade mayor, the county's top elected post.
The Bateman case centered on a plan by CHI to build a Children's Crisis Center in Homestead, which was being delayed by the company's inability to get a county sewer connection. That connection depended on construction of a new Homestead pump station, which in turn was stalled by concerns about its design and capacity by county officials.
Bateman was hired by CHI in February 2013 in an attempt to get the pump project moving, according to the arrest affidavit. He was also hired to oversee other CHI projects in the area. No one at CHI was charged, although Fernandez Rundle said the investigation was continuing.
"Right now, the focus is on the elected official," she said.
Gimenez, the Miami-Dade mayor, said he was never told that Bateman was working for CHI before their February meeting. Visitor logs also show Bateman listed only "city of Homestead" as the organization he represented at that meeting.
"He comes to me as the mayor of Homestead, he doesn't come to me as a lobbyist from Homestead," Gimenez said in a sworn statement to investigators.
The president and chief executive officer at CHI, Brodes Hartley Jr., told investigators in a sworn statement he knew Bateman would represent his firm in these meetings and that Batemen never indicated there could be a conflict of interest.
"I didn't try to stop him if that's the question," Hartley said in the statement.

"The Worms Crawl In, the Worms Crawl Out"

COLCORD, Okla. (AP) — A northeast Oklahoma town is temporarily without a water supply after city workers found worms in the municipal water tower.

The worms showed up in the drinking water supply in Colcord, a town of 815 people about 80 miles east of Tulsa. Vice Mayor Cody Gibby says the worms are a type of earthworm that range from a half-inch to an inch long.

Gibby says the worms are passing through water filters and getting into distribution lines. The town shut off its drinking water Tuesday night with plans to flush the water system out and scrub the water tower clean.

Typical earthworm

Classes are canceled Wednesday at Colcord schools, and bottled water is available for residents.

Sri Lankan Officials Uptight Over Canine Nuptials

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka (AP) — Sri Lankan police apologized Tuesday for holding a group wedding for dogs trained to detect explosives and drugs after the country's culture minister condemned the event and demanded an investigation.

Nine pairs of police sniffer dogs dressed in shawls, hats and socks were placed on a decorated platform like those used in traditional Buddhist weddings in the ceremony Monday in the central town of Kandy.
Their marriages were registered by an official in the presence of a crowd of veterinary surgeons, medical doctors, top police officers and the public.

Local television showed the dog couples later being driven away in a decorated police jeep for their "honeymoons."

The ceremony received wide publicity, and strong criticism from cultural officials.
Culture and Arts Minister T.B. Ekananayake said it undermined traditional wedding rituals and should be strongly condemned. He called for an investigation.

Police spokesman Buddhika Siriwardena apologized for any damage to the country's cultural heritage, saying the goal was to breed sniffer dogs domestically.

"This program is aimed at breeding dogs accustomed to local weather and food, thereby saving money," Siriwardena said in a statement, adding that in 2011 the police department spent $500,000 importing such dogs from the Netherlands.

By-standers, when asked about the ceremony, thought it was a clever idea and criticized the Culture Minister for his overreaction.

Man Prefers Jail: "Inmates Nice and Make Him Feel Important"

NEW YORK (AP) — A convicted sex offender who repeatedly used phony correction department credentials to gain entry into New York City jails has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Matthew Matagrano was sentenced Thursday. The 36-year-old Yonkers resident pleaded guilty last month to posing as a correction officer and sneaking into the Manhattan Detention Center, where he mingled with inmates for hours.

During a Feb. 27 visit Matagrano assaulted an inmate and stole a $2,500 walkie-talkie. He also handed out cigarettes to inmates.

Matagrano's rap sheet includes a conviction for sodomy and sexual abuse. Police statements released in court report Matagrano said he repeatedly sneaked into jails because the people inside were "nice" and made him "feel important."

It's Florida, Again - The Maniac State

A Dunkin’ Donuts worker was beaten and pistol-whipped Tuesday by a Florida couple enraged over a botched coffee order, police report.

The 1 PM melee at the Lauderhill eatery resulted in the arrest of Jeffrey Wright, 27, for aggravated battery, a felony. Alexis Longo, Wright’s 22-year-old wife, was charged with misdemeanor battery.

According to a Lauderhill Police Department report, the couple placed a drive-thru order that they later discovered contained the wrong coffee. Longo wanted her java with vanilla. Instead she got caramel.

So the pair parked their vehicle and went inside the restaurant to speak with a manager. Before that could occur, the pair got into an argument with the worker who had handled their order. Matters quickly escalated and Wright and Longo allegedly began assaulting the employee.

During the brawl, Wright, a security guard, repeatedly struck the victim in the head with a loaded Taurus Slim 9mm handgun (which he is licensed to carry). Store surveillance video shows Wright pummeling the worker while Longo gets in a few blows.

Seen in the above mug shots, Wright and Longo are both locked up at the Broward County jail. Wright is being held in lieu of $20,000 bond, while Longo’s bond has been set at $1000.

Stinkin' Goat Poop Fire

Spontaneous manure fire stinks up Vt. town

WINDSOR, Vt. (AP) — A pile of goat manure spontaneously caught fire, spreading stench and wrinkling noses through a Vermont town but causing no damage, officials said.
The odor evoked "a damp kind of burning leaves or brush fire," Windsor Town Manager Tom Marsh said, in an obvious effort to downplay the "cheesy" stench that engulfed the town.

A worker on her way to milk goats discovered the fire in the 120-cubic-yard manure pile around 3 a.m. Wednesday, said George Redick, owner of the 800-goat Oak Knoll Dairy. He and others put out the flames with water from a hose but the pile continued to smolder. He planned to call the fire department later in the morning, but firefighters were already searching for the source of the smell by 6:30 a.m.

Marsh said he could smell the fire at his hilltop home five miles away. He called it "a little disconcerting, because it was a very strong smell."

Redick says the manure would typically have been spread around the farm earlier in the year, but the rainy season and other factors kept that from happening.

He said he used to think spontaneous combustion was make-believe.
"Now I'm a believer," he said.

Anus-Shaped Chocolates – The World’s Most Outrageous Treats

From cooked insects to fermented bird meat, humans have been eating all kinds of outrageous foods for hundreds of years, but there are some things that I just wouldn’t dream of putting in my mouth. One of them is the anus-shaped Belgian chocolates sold by a cheeky British chocolaterie.
If you think the chocolate “Edible Anus” looks remarkably like the real thing, that’s because it’s made using a mold “crafted from the posterior” of the company’s “stunning butt model.” Feel like throwing up yet? There’s really no proof of that on their official website, so you’ll just have to take their word for it. The allegedly delicious treats are hand-crafted in the UK, and contain no artificial preservatives, if it’s any consolation. According to the geniuses behind this novelty desert, the Edible Anus is ”the perfect gift for the whole family” and will “light up” Grandma’s face, as she “unwraps a homely selection of chocolate cracks”. I’m pretty sure my family would disown me if I sent them a box of these unique treats, but they’re actually a great gift idea for your proctologist.
I’ve done some research on these unconventional chocolates, and apparently they’ve been around for at least six years. An old article on Yahoo Voices claims they were in such demand back then that an one time they were unavailable. With the press coverage they’ve been getting lately, these things are bound to make a comeback. But even if you can’t buy chocolate anuses, the company also sells solid silver anuses as souvenirs. They cost £260 ($400) and the price goes up as demand increases.

Drunk Cowboy Rides Horse Through Bar

Man Rides Horse Into a Bar, Lassos Patron, Gets Arrested
A resident of Scott, La., who apparently took the town's slogan of "Where the West begins" to heart, was arrested after he allegedly rode a horse into a local bar and lassoed a patron.
Jeremy Mouton, 26, was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly taking a horse from a trailer and riding it through the Cowboy Saloon twice before lassoing a patron and pulling him through the parking lot, police said. Mouton was arrested on charges including disturbing the peace, second-degree battery and public intimidation and retaliation.
According to the arrest affidavit, Mouton became "highly intoxicated" at the Cowboy Saloon then went outside and unloaded a horse from a nearby trailer. Mouton took a couple of laps around the bar and parking lot before leaving.
When Mouton rode through the bar for a second time, another patron grabbed the horse's reins to lead Mouton back outside to await police.
But Mouton lassoed another man and pulled him through the parking lot before riding off the premises to his home, according to the police report. After the police arrived, Mouton came back to the bar as well-this time on foot-and hid until the police found and arrested him.
Chad Leger, chief of the Scott Police Department, said the story was "a little like the beginning of a joke," and not something he had ever had to deal with before.
"[It's] kind of an ironic situation," said Leger of how Mouton's actions reflected on the town's slogan. "We're going to go back to the days of John Wayne."

8 Foot Mounted Polar Bear Needs Good Home.

JONESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania restaurant owner is trying to find a good home for an 8-foot stuffed polar bear.

For years, patrons of the Woods Creek Grill outside of Harrisburg have enjoyed posing for pictures with the bear, which was legally shot in Alaska in 1967, the Harrisburg Patriot-News reported.
Restaurant owner Dave DeWees bought the bear and other mounted animals at auctions.
"We wanted things people could come in and see, things they could walk up to," he said. "I can't tell you how many hundreds of people had their photographs taken with her," DeWees told the paper.
But when he shifted careers and decided to sell the restaurant, he learned that the law on bears has shifted, too.

Now, the bear can't cross state lines or be sold to someone in another country because of endangered species laws, even though it was shot almost 50 years ago.

An ad for the bear appeared recently in the classified section of the Patriot-News. DeWees' father, Ken, said he's gotten several calls asking if the advertisement is for real.
It would be illegal for DeWees to sell the bear even in Pennsylvania without proper documentation that it was shot legally in 1967, the paper reported. But the original hunter was meticulous, and there are folders of information documenting where and when the bear was taken.

                                                                   Not the actual bear
DeWees said the polar bear is a good example of the species.
"It's like any other piece of art," DeWees said. "There's good and there's bad."

See Your Friends and Strangers in Toilet Stall

Crazy Vienna Cafe Has See-Through Toilet Doors

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to say goodbye to privacy in the place where it mattered most – the restroom. A wacky cafe in Vienna has installed see-through toilet doors that only turn opaque if the users lock them.
For a lot of people, using the toilet in public places is uncomfortable enough, but the owners of Cafe Diglas, in Vienna, Austria, decided to make it even worse for them by replacing the regular bathroom doors with transparent glass ones that allow anyone who walks in to literally catch them with their pants down. Luckily, it’s not really as bad as it sounds. You see, these are smart toilet doors that turn opaque at the turn of a switch. All the user has to do is lock the door when they’re inside and watch the see-through glass become opaque as a light above them projects a no-entry sign onto it. It’s a really cool trick, but the viral YouTube video that shows them in action doesn’t come with an explanation of the magic that makes them switch in an instant.
Luckily some of the video comments shed some light on this neat technology:  ”It’s actually really simple. It’s to do with the glass being made of silver halide molecules that align allowing light to pass through, when the voltage is removed it the molecules randomise absorbing more light making the glass translucent,” a YouTube user writes. He is quickly contradicted by another who claims “it’s the other way around, once the voltage is added it becomes translucent, turning the lock completes the circuit and provides the atoms with energy making them vibrate, thus being translucent.” I’m hoping the second version is the right one, otherwise a power-out could put Cafe Diglas patrons in a very embarrassing situation.

Ultimate Cheapskate Uses No Toilet Paper

Woman Saves Money by Not Using Toilet Paper or Doing Laundry

Kay, a woman from New York who’s going to be featured on TLC’s upcoming series Extreme Cheapskates, uses a combination of soap and water to rinse her private parts after using the restroom, instead of spending money on toilet paper, like the rest of us.
In the first episode of TLC’s new series, Kay explains how she uses a simple bar of soap and a bottle of water to clean herself up after using the bathroom. After she urinates, the woman says she just dries herself up with some paper towels, but”If I took a dump then I also grab soap, wipe myself down with the soap, then I take the water and rinse off the soap”, she explains in the recently-released trailer, making us all count the days until October 16 when the show airs. “I don’t believe in spending money on something that you’re just going to throw away such as toilet paper or paper towels,” she says, trying to explain her bizarre behavior.

But her refusal to spend money on toilet paper isn’t the only thing that makes Kay an extreme cheapskate. She also reveals she hasn’t done laundry in the last three years, which she reckons has helped her save $6 a month. It’s not a fortune, but when you set a strict budget for yourself like she has, every cent counts. Instead she washes all her clothes by hand, while she takes a shower. Kay then hangs them up in the shower and lets them dry naturally, which she claims helps keeps clothes looking newer for longer than if you were using a dryer.

Forty Years Living in the Jungle

40 years ago, during the Vietnam War, Ho Van Thanh was seen running into the woods with his then-infant son Ho Van Lang. They hadn’t been seen since, until a few days ago when two villagers accidentally stumbled upon their bamboo hut deep in the forests of Vietnam’s Quang Ngai province.

No one imagined Ho Van Tranh could have survived for 40 years, after he disappeared into the jungle in 1973.
A bomb exploded in his home during the war with the United States, killing his wife and two other children, and eye-witnesses reported seeing him grab his two-year-old sun Ho Van Lang and running into the forest.

But just a few days ago, the impossible happened. Two villagers from the Tay Tra district who had ventured 40 kilometers into the lush jungle looking for firewood noticed a strange bird-nest-like hut built in a small clearing, near a stream. Curious about its origin they decided to investigate and found two men living inside. The weak 82-year-old man could communicate in the in the Cor ethnic minority language, but his 41-year-old son, who was wearing a loin cloth made from tree bark, only spoke a few words. The villagers alerted the authorities who later confirmed the two mysterious jungle dwellers were indeed Ho Van Tranh and Ho Van Lang.

Give It A Rest

Divorce-related legal feud in Ohio lasts 17 years

August 12, 2013

CINCINNATI (AP) — A 17-year legal fight between two law professors over their divorce and continuing disputes has drawn criticism from judges who say the pair set a bad example.
The feud has lasted seven years longer than the couple's 10-year marriage, The Cincinnati Enquirer ( ) reported. Their divorce case file had more than 1,400 entries in it. Many had to do with a back-and-forth custody dispute over their children, now ages 17 and 20. Among issues still being litigated is money.

Judges hearing the case complained the professors broke rules or abused the system.
"It is frightening to this court that either is teaching current law students the boundaries and ethics of our profession," Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Leslie Ghiz said during a July hearing. "Both should be thoroughly embarrassed and ashamed."

University of Cincinnati professor Christo Lassiter questions how judges managed the cases between him and his ex-wife. He said his motivation has been being a good parent, not spite or revenge.
"Had a court stepped in and resolved the major issues cleanly and early, there would not have been voluminous (legal filings)," Lassiter said. His former wife, Sharlene Boltz, didn't immediately return a call Monday to her office at Northern Kentucky University.

Ghiz said both should be admonished by the Ohio State Bar Association. Judges in other courts also have blasted the couple's prolonged legal conflict.
"This court has not seen many domestic relations cases more contentious and acrimonious," the Ohio 1st District Court of Appeal wrote in 2002. "The parties, who are both law professors and ought to know better, engaged in thoroughly inappropriate behavior that was detrimental to the resolution of their case and to the welfare of their children for which both claimed to be primarily concerned."

The divorce itself took five years, about five times as long as what one veteran attorney, George Maley of Loveland, says would be a typical divorce case involving children. Boltz called police on Lassiter several times, and his paycheck was garnisheed for back child support, The Enquirer reported. Lassiter said she owes him money. Their next court hearing is Sept. 6.

Danger - Baby Fire Hazard

Chennai baby catching fire due to rare condition 
A Chennai baby keeps catching fire due to a rare condition, according to an Aug. 10 ANI News report. The baby suffers from Spontaneous Human Combustion (SHC), which has only affected some 200 people throughout the entire world in the past three centuries.

The baby, named Rahul, first started catching fire when he was just nine days old. Currently, he is being treated at Kilpauk Medical College (KMC) Hospital. This condition has to be incredibly difficult to manage and treat. Thankfully Rahul's parents have gotten him medical care. Many times people who suffer from this condition end up dying when their bedding or clothing catches fire.

Doctors hope that Rahul will be able to be healed or cured of the SHC condition. They have a long road ahead of them since this is such a rare condition, and there is not much information on how to treat or cure it. What a terrible situation for this little boy and his family.

No Extra Charge For the Condiments

Man finds maggots on sandwich at Atlanta airport

Published August 7, 2013 

ATLANTA (AP) — A restaurant says it has switched vendors after a customer found a cluster of maggots on his sandwich at Atlanta's airport.

Weekly traveler Joel Woloshuk told WSB-TV Tuesday ( ) that he bought a sandwich from Café Intermezzo and realized the white specks on top of it were maggots — not parmesan — when they began moving.

In a statement to WSB-TV, Café Intermezzo's president said the case was isolated and the problem could not have originated at the restaurant. He says the restaurant switched bread vendors and "not a single crumb" from the original bakery remains.

Atlanta Department of Aviation officials say they're distributing ultraviolet lights to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport restaurants so they can better inspect food shipments.
The Clayton County Board of Health says it found no citable violation at the location that it inspected.

Only in New York

                                                             Not the actual shark

Dead shark is found in NYC subway car 

August 7, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — Did a fan of "Shark Week" get carried away?
New York City's transit authority says a conductor found a dead shark aboard a subway train in Queens on Wednesday.

The conductor asked passengers to leave the car and closed it off. The train continued to the end of the line, and then a supervisor placed the shark in a garbage bag and put it in the trash.

Photos on the blog Gothamist depict the shark on the subway. It appears to be about 4 feet long, has a cigarette in its mouth with a fare card and Red Bull can nearby.

Transit officials say they were aware of the photos but are making no effort to find the person who posted them. The transit authority says it has "better things to do."

Canine 'Canoodling' By Owner Warrants Trial

On July 10, 2013, a judge determined that Maryland teacher, Stephanie Mikles, 46, will stand trial for bestiality, despite her attorney’s objections, according to the Baltimore Sun.  Judge Robert Dugan dismissed attorney Leslie Gladstone’s argument that the charge of unnatural or perverted practice is too vague making it unconstitutional. The judge also dismissed a motion asking evidence be suppressed in the case.

Mikles is accused of engaging in a number of sex acts with the family dog for about 30 days in August 2008.

She was arrested following a search of her home by child advocacy officers of Harford County following allegations of a boy who claimed he had sex with Mikles, Assistant State’s Attorney Lisa Marts told the Sun. Charges have not been filed regarding that claim.
During the search, the agency reportedly found a CD containing 12 photos of Mikles having sex with the dog.

Mikles denies the charge, and is currently on administrative leave without pay from her job with the Harford County School District pending the outcome of the matter.

According to the Sun, she had been employed as a behavioral specialist for the school district, working with special education teachers who instruct students with disabilities.
If found guilty of the charge, she could serve up to 10 years in prison and could be ordered to pay as much as $1,000 in fines.

Mikles was released from jail on $5,000 bond shortly after her arrest.
In May, ABC 2 reported the dog was still living with the family.
