November Trial For Pikesville Harassment Case
The trial for a Baltimore woman accused of harassing and attacking a young Pikesville couple has been set for Nov. 18 in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
Stephanie Kamlot, 41, is charged with two counts of second-degree assault, stalking, harassment, malicious destruction of property, fourth-degree burglary and intimidating a juror.
The disposition for the first assault charge was postponed on Sept. 9 to Nov. 18, when the other charges will be heard. A second count of malicious destruction of property and a trespassing charge were dropped in Circuit Court on Aug. 28.
The charges come from roughly two years of incidents in which Kamlot is alleged to have placed razor blades under Pikesville resident Leah Efron’s car tires, assaulted her at Seven Mile Market and harassed Efron and her husband, Noam, at their former residence at the Pickwick Apartments. In May, Kamlot was arrested after allegedly pulling out a handgun replica and throwing a large rock through a window of the Efrons’ home in the 3100 block of Northbrook Road.
Kamlot’s attorney, Marc Snyder, has been working to consolidate her charges in order for her to receive one judgment. He plans to plead not criminally responsible in hopes to get Kamlot psychiatric help.
“We want the ultimate disposition to be in her best interest,” he said. “It makes the most sense for everyone [for the sentence] to be in one disposition.”
Snyder said Kamlot will be evaluated before Nov. 18 by a mental health professional approved by the state and the defense.
While Noam Efron thinks Kamlot needs help, he thinks she should go to jail.
“She ruined my life for two years,” he said. “She was calculating in what she did. She knew exactly what she was doing.”
