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.

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.
