Bradenton woman charged with having sex with dog back in jail

BRADENTON -- The woman who was charged with having a dog perform oral sex on was released and then arrested again Thursday after violating the terms of her supervised release, according to jail records.

Detectives discovered Ashley Miller, 18, had explicit photos of her and a dog stored on her phone, according to the Bradenton Police Department. Miller confessed she had the canine perform oral sex on her up to 40 times, police reported.

Miller was arrested again Thursday on charges of violating her supervised release, which required her to stay away from animals and check in every Tuesday and Thursday, according to court records.

Miller asked the court if instead of reporting in person during her supervised release she could call in after being accepted into a Hillsborough County safe house, according to court documents. The nature of the safe house was not listed.

Her arraignment is scheduled for July 14.

Miller was originally arrested June 12 and charged with two counts of misdemeanor sexual activities involving animals. She was released after posting bonds totaling $1,000.

Police said the dog showed no signs of injury and was taken to a veterinarian for an exam.
