Porn Star Teacher Stacie Halas Loses Appeal to Get Job Back

| by

A middle school teacher who had a 9-month-long career as a porn star is unable to return to the classroom after losing an appeal. 

Stacie Halas was fired in April, according to Inquisitr, after pornographic videos she starred in were discovered by students and staff. 

A panel of three judges agreed unanimously that Halas is unfit to return to her teaching job. They based their decision mainly on her continual dishonesty about her past and the accessibility of the videos. 

Judge Julie Cabos-Owen wrote of the matter:

"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. While she has failed to establish hat she can be trusted as a role model for children or an example of redemption, the circumstances that one's decisions and conduct, particularly continual deceit, must bring with them certain consequences."

Halas, 32, taught science at Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard, California. 

She has the option to appeal the ruling to Ventura County Superior Court. Halas' attorney Richard Schwab has not said whether or not she will do so. 

Schwab said that the panel's decision "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."
