Stephanie Mohr, Director
(independent/voting member—August 2022 – Present)
Stephanie is a former Prince George’s County, Maryland police officer who, herself, received support of the LELDF and became the first police officer supported by the LELDF to receive a presidential pardon.
While serving as a police officer, Stephanie was convicted in 2001 of a federal civil rights violation and sentenced to 10 years in prison after her police dog bit an escaping burglar in 1995.
In fact, Stephanie wasn’t guilty of anything. The LELDF learned about her cases, dug in and waged a 19-year battle, ultimately petitioning and working to achieve a presidential pardon for Stephanie.
In December 2020, President Donald J. Trump granted Stephanie a full and unconditional pardon. Learn more about her case and the LELDF’s support for her:
Stephanie graduated from Towson University, Towson, MD in 1992 with a degree in Sociology. She proudly served as a police officer with Prince George’s County Police from 1993 – 2001. Upon release from prison in 2011, Stephanie went to work as a Property Standards Inspector and later a Construction Standards Inspector for Prince George’s County DPIE until 2018 when she went to work for St. Mary’s County government as a Construction Inspector until May 2022.
In May 2022, Stephanie and her significant other, Jeff relocated to Pinehurst, NC for all things golf and eventually real retirement. Stephanie enjoys volunteering with dog rescue organizations, taking care of her pack of 4 rescue dogs at home, playing golf, outdoor adventures, and exploring all that Pinehurst and the quaint surrounding towns have to offer.
Stephanie is a proud mom to her son Adam, who now honorably serves as a police officer, continuing a family tradition of dedication to public service.
