California Teacher Loses Court Appeal Over Porn Past

California eighth grade science teacher, Stacie Halas, 32, has lost her case to remain as a teacher because of her porn past where she was the star in a number of adult films. Working under the stage name of Tiffany Six, Halas was the star in as many as 19 adult films according to some sources. Her porn past was discovered when a number of her students began to circulate her films among other students, and the whisper campaign quickly developed into a full blown scandal.

Her appeal to return back to the classroom was denied by the panel of judges on appeal. She now likely loses any pay or benefits as well.

No word on whether the judges thought that she was a great porn actress or not, though. Suddenly her science lectures on how friction works now take on a whole different meaning.

    Herein lies the problem: Ten-fifteen years from now, when it comes out I go to a shooting range, participate in 3-gun competitions and play Civil War miniatures games (albeit as a Union general usually), wanna bet a dollar I get written up as an undesirable influence on kids and get canned?

    The porn should not matter. Can she teach? Can she maintain discipline? Are her kids learning? Is what she is doing legal? If the answer is yes, then….

    • It’s also another sign that even California just isn’t as liberal or tolerant as claimed. School districts are certainly concerned about lawsuits and unfit teachers. But, she hasn’t proved any sexual wrongdoing involving students or there is any reason to believe that she may commit sexual crimes. There doesn’t appear to be any grounds to deny her the right to a new career after porn. Many young women flow in and out of porn, and most need to have some new career when they quit the business.

      The other story above where Ira Isaacs was sentenced to four years in prison for producing and selling some very offensive movies is another sign that California isn’t as liberal or tolerant either. Certainly his films are disgusting. Yet, they involve the sexual activity of consenting adults, who were willing to be paid to do gross things for money. It’s like the sexual version of JACKASS, and hardly any matter for government to worry about. Why some beautiful woman will accept money to perform some gross acts is beyond me. I don’t care to watch something disgusting like that. It’s not appealing to me. Not erotic. But, once again government is acting like a nanny for everyone telling everyone in the public that it has the power to regulate bad taste in entertainment. That’s a nonsense crime to send someone to prison over. Where is the public safety in that? Obscenity laws don’t keep porn from becoming too extreme. Public consumption tastes do. PLAYBOY, as tame as it is, is the best selling adult product, while the more hard the other stuff, sells less and less well.

      Stacie Halas wasn’t in too many films, but she did some interracial stuff. Despite this being modern times, some people are still funny about that. I don’t know if that partially played a factor here.

      My bother’s girlfriend is Mexican, and my girlfriend’s family is mostly African American, although she’s White and Jewish. So our family photo looks like the League Of Nations.

      • Wouldn’t it be funny if – 20 years from now – folks really WERE reading Playboy for the articles?

        • I already do. The articles are unfortunately the best thing in the magazine, because the girl features just don’t do it for me. Larry Flynt has done the girl photo features much better for years now than PLAYBOY. He’s done college aged girl photos far better than PLAYBOY for years. But, PLAYBOY does have a decided strong journalism that HUSTLER publications still lack. GALLERY and GENESIS were once promising magazines, but both fell into financial problems and are now just picture books and not well rounded men’s magazines like PLAYBOY, PENTHOUSE or HUSTLER still attempt to be. I still miss the classic men’s magazine of the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. These magazines were decidedly less explicit than most men’s magazines these days which portray actual sexual acts, and featured some great articles on automobiles, motorcycles, stereo equipment, music and other genres. PLAYBOY’s annual music poll was always something that I much enjoyed. And PLAYBOY Forum was a great feature looking at law or other issues.

          As far as my influences here at Wizbang Pop, you can tell that I loved MAD Magazine and CRACKED Magazine as a youngster, NATIONAL LAMPOON as a teenager, and PLAYBOY and HUSTLER as a young adult. There’s lots of music news, lots of cars and motorcycles, lots of sexy humor, and funny outrageous photos. Google frowns if I use too much nudity here. But, in a few stories like this that are legitimate news, I think that it’s an appropriate illustration, and it makes for more fun as well.

      There is no way this women can maintain order in a classroom full of teenagers.

      I’m a live and let live kinda guy, but she is finished teaching high-school.

      Maybe elementary school children, but these days even thats a stretch

        Really? While I have no idea what she was like as a teacher, I can say that I have worked with people with shady pasts that they make into examples of how not to behave.

        I mean, with at most a few glaring exceptions, students respond to honesty. “I messed up in the past. Don’t do what I did.” is a great teaching tool. Drug counselors that kicked the habit, teen moms that made it without becoming TV fodder, gang members who got all the way out; these kind of people inspire and teach in ways the rest cannot.

        Besides, with Facebook/Pinterest/Tumblr photos becoming almost public domain, what kind of boundaries are going to be set? How long in the past does something legal but stupid need to be before it gets ignored?

          Seriously?

          You think that a teacher with a porn history can maintain order in a classroom full of teen agers?

          Id like to redirect your attention to the original story

          Its tough for her, I personally hold nothing against her, but some mistakes change our options for keeps.

            I get that, but the story is saying she is being removed not because she can’t teach, but because she had sex on film. (The moral turpitude clause in contracts.)

            I teach in a continuation HS in SoCal. I get the students that can’t handle the ‘rigors’ of regular, comprehensive High School. Discipline is anticipating problems and taking steps to make sure they don’t interfere with daily lessons. Like I said, use that mistake, own it and move on.

            Besides, in five-ten years she won’t look a thing like she did in the films.
