New Details Emerge In Controversy Surrounding Teacher Fired For Her Porn Past

View Comments

OXNARD (CBSLA.com) — Almost a year after Oxnard Unified School District removed Stacie Halas from her classroom for having a porn past, CBS2 and KCAL9 obtained a 48-page document revealing what went on at a closed-door competency hearing.

Halas, 32, admitted she did porn for about nine months before being hired at Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard.

She told a panel she only took the porn work because of financial hardships. (She appeared in XXX videos under the name Tiffany Six.)

Suraya Fadel, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, said the document revealed Halas not only had money woes of her own — but that she was also helping her parents with their mortgage payments and groceries.

Halas said she earned $1,500 per role and made about $18,000 in all during her tenure with a Simi Valley-based porn company from 2005-2006.

The document also showed while Halas was under investigation from the school district she worried the porn would come to light and cost her her job.

Fadel said she wrote two emails to the company trying to keep her past buried. In one email she wrote, “Please help me. This video has somehow linked to my real name. I have been teaching now for nearly ten years and this is putting me in a situation of losing my job.”

In another email she reportedly wrote, “Please block this video. I am a teacher involved with the school district over this video and this site … I hope that you understand the defamation of my character that this has caused.”

Tuesday, a three-judge panel concluded that the “on-going availability” of her porn material on the internet “will continue to impede her from being an effective teacher and respected colleague” and upheld the decision to fire her from her job as a science teacher.
