Former dominatrix loses fight to keep job as police officer
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey sheriff’s officer has lost her job because she previously appeared in bondage films as a dominatrix.
Hudson County Sheriff Frank Schillari tells The Jersey Journal a hearing officer made the decision to fire Kristen Hyman on Wednesday, and he agrees with the decision.
The department suspended her six days before her academy graduation last year, saying she failed to disclose that she appeared in the films and sometimes saw clients privately for money. Court documents show Hyman told investigators she never appeared naked and didn’t perform sex acts in the videos.
A judge rescinded the suspension, and Hyman was sworn in June 8. She then went on paid administrative leave pending the hearing.
A lawyer who previously represented Hyman says he’s no longer involved in the case.
