Middle school teacher who was also a porn star loses appeal to return to classroom

A Southern California middle school teacher who was fired after administrators learned about her porn star past has lost her appeal to retain her job.

A three-female administrative law panel ruled unanimously that Stacie Halas, 32, is unfit to teach science at Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard, CA, the Ventura County Star reports.

Officials with the Oxnard School District removed Halas from the classroom in March 2012, three days after intrepid students managed to identify her in hardcore pornography videos, according to The Smoking Gun.

In April, the local school board voted in unison to sack Halas, not least because of the disruption the discovery about her past had caused among students.

In a hearing prior to the administrative court decision, an emotional Halas told the panel that she had participated in the adult film industry from December 2005 to August 2006, notes the County Star. It was an unhappy time, she said, because her husband-to-be had left her. She was also deeply in debt.

However, Judge Julie Cabos-Owen and the other members of the panel were not moved. In a 46-page explanation, Cabos-Owen repeatedly cited Halas’s lack of honesty when school officials conducted their initial investigation.

“The circumstances of this case most certainly demonstrate that one’s decisions and conduct, particularly continual deceit, must bring with them certain consequences,” Cabos-Owen said.

“Given the viral and infinite nature of the Internet, an imminent end to (Halas’s) notoriety does not appear likely,” she added.

Richard Schwab, an attorney for Halas, disagreed that his client had lied and called the decision a disappointment.

“I believe this matter sadly indicates that when people have a past which is not criminal or hurts other individuals, they may not be able to be remediated or redemptive because of their past experience,” Schwab told the County Star.

The next step in the judicial process for Halas, if she opts for it, is another appeal, this time in Ventura County Superior Court.

During her foray into x-rated movie production, Halas worked in numerous videos, performing an impressive selection of sexual acts under the name “Tiffany Six.”

In one 2006 film, Halas can be seen intertwined with up to four men simultaneously, reports The Smoking Gun. Other actors and actresses appearing in the film include Mia Bangg, Dick Nasty and Arnold Schwarzenpecker.

Another part of the same film reportedly shows Halas answering an interviewer’s questions. At the time, she admitted that her appearances in x-rated films could jeopardize her career.

“It is risky, very risky for me,” she said, according to The Smoking Gun. “‘Cause I am a teacher.”

The unnamed interviewer then asked her why she had chosen to moonlight in the adult film industry.

“Money, and it’s fun,” Halas said then. “It’s exciting.”
