A 20-year-old veterinary student has been reinstated as Oakland County's 4-H Queen after she was cleared of animal cruelty charges.

A judge in Lapeer County last week dismissed the charges against Kate Mills, who had been accused of torturing and killing animals at her family's farm. The judge cited a lease that showed Mills was living at the time in East Lansing, where she is a full-time pre-veterinary student.

The Oakland County Fair Board voted unanimously to reinstate Mills as queen through July 10, when a new queen will be crowned.

Felony and misdemeanor charges remain in place for Mills' father, mother and brother.
