A newly sworn-in sheriff's officer is fighting to keep her job after her department learned that she previously appeared in bondage films as a dominatrix.
Hudson County sheriff's officer Kristen Hyman is accused of conduct unbecoming a public employee and faces a disciplinary hearing June 27, The Jersey Journal reported on Thursday. The department says the videos, produced from 2010 to 2012, have sparked ridicule for it.

The department suspended Hyman on May 26, six days before her academy graduation, saying she failed to disclose that she appeared in the films and sometimes saw clients privately for money.Her stage name was "Domina Nyx" and at least she'll have some interesting stories to retell in the squad car.
Court documents show that Hyman told investigators she never appeared naked and didn't perform any sex acts in the videos.
Hyman called the videos "stupid stuff I did when I was a kid." She said that violent acts seen in some recordings, including whipping and kicking, were staged and that she was merely an actress. She also noted that she didn't use her real name.
In general, I'm in favor of forgiving people their stupid actions of the past, particularly younger people, who don't seem to develop mature brains before about 26. But that doesn't mean that you don't get to remind them now and then:
