This porn star teacher is in hot water. A California judge recently denied a middle school teacher's appeal to return to teaching after she was fired for her past career in porn.
The porn star teacher, 32-year-old Stacie Halas, was dismissed in April from her job at Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard after online videos of her in X-rated films were discovered by students and teachers.
"We were hoping we could show you could overcome your past," Halas lawyer Richard Schwab said Tuesday. "I think she's representative of a lot of people who may have a past that may not involve anything illegal or anything that hurts anybody."
"Although her pornography career has concluded, the ongoing availability of her pornographic materials on the Internet will continue to impede her from being an effective teacher and respected colleague," Judge Cabos-Owen said in the 46-page decision issued Friday by the Commission on Professional Competence.
The AP reports:
Halas, 32, was continually deceitful about her nine-month career in porn before she went to work at the school, the judges said.
Schwab said Halas "was being honest and forthright, but was embarrassed and humiliated by her past experience in the adult industry."
Student claims that the teacher was moonlighting as a porn star were initially dismissed after school officials said they couldn't find any images of her on the Internet — but they were using the school's computers, which don't allow access to porn.
Teachers then showed administrators downloads of Halas' sex videos from their smartphones.
