Former dominatrix loses fight to keep job as police officer

Posted: Updated:
JERSEY CITY -

(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 told The Jersey Journal a hearing officer made the decision to fire Kristen Hyman on Wednesday. Schillari said he agreed 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 showed Hyman told investigators she never appeared naked and didn't perform any sex acts in the videos.

The suspension was rescinded by a judge and Hyman was sworn in June 8. She then went on paid administrative leave pending the hearing.

James Lisa, a lawyer who had represented Hyman, said Wednesday night that he was no longer involved in the case.
