A New Jersey school district is divided after learning one of its teacher’s aides is Crystal Gunns, a porn star who’s appeared in numerous adult productions.
Crystal Gunns — or Louisa C. Tuck, as she’s known in the real world — had evidently taken a job working with children at D’Ippolito Elementary School in Vineland, NJ. She helps on the playground and in the cafeteria and tells The Daily Journal it’s been five years since she’s done pornography.
Still, some parents aren’t pleased. The president of the area’s Board of Education says the Crystal Gunns connection is enough for Tuck to be fired. The superintendent, though, is seemingly on her side — suggesting that the district has been “advised against taking action,” the Journal reports. (Legal advisors seemingly told the district it has no legal grounds to terminate an employee based solely on previous employment.)
Tuck also works with kids at a local YMCA. Some parents there called her an “excellent role model” and took no issue with her porn star past.
As for that past, Crystal Gunns appeared in at least three adult-themed movies: “Busty Dildo Lovers #5″ in 2003, “Score Brabusters” in 2002, and “Busty Dildo Lovers #2,” also in 2002. She also still appears to maintain an adult Web site at crystalgunns.com, though the front page now features only a login prompt for paying members. Nonetheless, finding photos or videos of her pornographic endeavors is easily enough accomplished with a simple search (warning: results may be NSFW). The result midway down the page — at a site called “Lana’s” — contains her full (and very NSFW) adult model profile, which features an unblurred version of the photo above.
Tuck, however, takes issue with all of that affecting her future, telling The Daily Journal that many current role models had questionable pasts.
“If this is about morality, our president-elect has admitted to doing crack, and he’s our president. Does that make him a bad person? Bill Clinton smoked pot. Does that make him a bad person?” she asks.
The school board indicates it will “continue to look into the situation and determine [its] options.”
This is the second case of an educator making headlines for racy photos this week, though the last one had a very different twist. Victoria Ann Chacon, a junior high teacher from Texas, was arrested earlier this week on charges of sending topless photos of herself to a 14-year-old boy.
