Kristen Hyman is gaining some unwanted viral attention, as pictures and video of the adult film star-turned-New Jersey sheriff’s deputy have emerged, and her racy past is making headlines across the country.
The Hudson County sheriff’s officer has been suspended from her job for more than three weeks after she failed to disclose that she appeared in bondage videos as a dominatrix and met with clients privately for money, NJ.com reported. Hyman was less than a week shy of graduating from the police academy when her racy past came to light, and now her fight to keep her job is becoming a national story.
As the report noted, Kristen Hyman appeared in the adult video between 2010 and 2012 and was not particularly discreet about her work, even going so far as to promote herself on social media. Hyman successfully argued before a New Jersey judge that she had done nothing illegal, and she was granted the right to complete police academy at the start of June.
Hyman now has a disciplinary hearing scheduled later this month, when she will learn if she is able to continue her job as a law enforcement officer.
For her part, Kristen Hyman has owned up to her former work as a dominatrix, calling it “stupid stuff I did when I was a kid.” Hyman also noted that all of her scenes — in which she was seen appearing to choke a man until he passed out — were staged and that she committed no sex acts on camera.
