    Stacie Halas, California Teacher Fired For Porn Star Past, Loses Appeal

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_2486138.html

    OXNARD, Calif. -- A middle-school science teacher fired after students learned she had appeared in pornographic movies had hoped not just to get her job back, but to set a precedent for people looking to escape an embarrassing personal history.

    A three-judge commission put a decisive stop to both, saying firmly and unanimously that Stacie Halas should not be in the classroom.

    "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.......more at link......

    The middle school kids found her porn movies?


    "The further we (as the human race) grow away from the natural world, the quieter the natural world becomes and the more pathological we become as a culture."........Bernie Krause

    The citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for having given to mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy—a policy worthy of imitation......which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance.......George Washington

    I am so sad for Staci. I mean, yes, acting in porn is not the most...socially acceptable jobs, but...it's not illegal; it's not even a big "no-no".

    Why can't she make a clean break, and move into a more "socially acceptable" position?

    I've known porn actors/actresses...for the most part, they have shame in doing it, but it was done for a solid reason - it tends to pay fairly well. Earning a living legally should not be frowned upon...

    It was legal, for pete's sake.

    Gah. Sometimes I get super frustrated with the legal system, as this is a judgment on someone who has done some serious work to get her teaching license; to deny her the right to change her life is just wrong.

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Crappy reporting. How long did she work as a teacher? Using school computers to look up porn for any reason doesn't seem appropriate. I wonder who was really the first to find the porn then decided to blame the kids.

    I hate to be the lone dissenter here, but she could have gone into lots of careers. The disruption this would cause would go on for a long time.... there is no erasing the porn now. Sometimes you just have to live with your choices.

    I don’t agree with the ruling by this Commission. Too puritanical for my blood.

    She didn’t do anything illegal. So she appeared in some adult films, big deal. If she appeared in some violent movie, fully clothed, and people were shot up to shreds I’m sure that would have been alright.

    it's like she's being punished for trying to pull her self up. those kids, as someone said earlier didn't find this out on their own. sounds like someone helped them find out.
    we need to encourage harder sentencing on those that are harming our children. our children are worth it!!

    stop the circus!! these children as all children deserve to be found and justice brought forth for what has happened to them!!

    She did do the right thing to get herself into a clean industry that pays FAR less, so I respect her for that.
    GOOD move Stacie.
    But I as a Mom would want a good role model teaching my children. I want them to have someone to look up to. What a rare concept for today's times.
    Having said that - what were these children doing looking at porn anyway???
    I did not even know what porn was when I was a teen.
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.
