Teachers in their spare time

It seems to me that government employees should not be punished for things that are legal and which they do in their spare time. To arrange it otherwise allows too much opportunity for politicians and government managers to abuse their power, as in the case of a middle school teacher in beautiful Oxnard, California, who makes some money performing in adult videos in her spare time.  Smoking Gun has the details here and a follow-up here.

And what about this:
Stacie Halas, a 31-year-old science teacher at Richard B. Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard, was removed from the classroom Monday, three days after pupils reported spotting her in a series of X-rated clips. [italics added]
Haydock (website, performance measures - the individual teacher web pages are down, or were never up) is a two-year school providing 7th and 8th grade instruction and home of the Jaguars. Should perhaps more attention at Haydock be devoted to the parents of the children who are locating porn videos featuring their teachers than on the teachers themselves?

Addendum: apparently not just the teachers at Haydock like making steamy videos.

Bonus question: Just who is Richard B. Haydock?
