Hardcore porn star turned teacher loses appeal, job at California school

OXNARD, Calif. — A porn star-turned-middle school science teacher fired after students learned she had appeared in adult movies had hoped to get her job back. She was also hoping to set a precedent for people looking to escape an embarrassing personal history.

On Tuesday, a three-judge commission put a decisive stop to both, saying firmly and unanimously that Stacie Halas, known as “Tiffany Six” when she worked in the adult film industry, should not be in the classroom, the Associated Press reported.

“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.”

Judge Julie Cabos-Owen said such a past matters in an age when technology makes porn easy to access and hard to bury.

“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,” Cabos-Owen said in the 46-page decision issued Friday by the Commission on Professional Competence.

Halas, 32, was continually deceitful about her nine-month career in porn before she went to work at the school, the judges said.
