Should This Miami Police Officer Be Kicked Off The Force For Starring In An Adult Film?
Sabine Raymonvil, an officer of the Miami Police Department, is under investigation after allegations surfaced that she performed in pornographic films while working on the force.
South Florida ABC affiliate, WPLG, reports that they received videos of Raymonvil performing sex acts on men, one of them being Emerson Callum. Callum is currently serving a life sentence in prison for drugging and raping women who auditioned to be in his adult films back in 2012.
In some of the videos, Raymonvil, was seen auditioning for Callum.
WPLG attempted to speak to Raymonvil, on camera, about the story but she refused.
Later, she called the news station and said: “Right now there is a lot going on with this whole situation,” Raymonvil said. “It’s currently under investigation by two police agencies. So I can’t say very much. I’m willing to speak with you after the investigations are closed. I never made porn while I was a police officer.”
A source, close to the investigation, says otherwise, claiming that Raymonvil, who has been on the force for the past eight years, appeared in adult films well into her tenure as a police officer.
There are no direct rules forbidding a police officer from participating in pornography. But it could fall under “conduct unbecoming.”
In 2009, Hollywood police officer, Mike Verdugo, was fired from the job when his employers learned that he had appeared in a gay porno three years before becoming a cop.
The Miami Police Department said that their investigation into Raymonvil’s background is ongoing and they refused to comment on the matter.
God forbid you try to turn your life around. No matter what strides you take, there will always be someone ready to throw your past in your face, in an attempt to bring you down.
Obviously, someone who knew Raymonvil sent these videos to the news station in an attempt to shame and sabotage her. And that’s vile.
It really saddens me that this woman, who’s likely faced her own challenges working in a male dominated environment, is having to deal with the additional pressure of being publicly shamed. No one wants to be followed by news media at work, being questioned about whether or not they ever participated in porn.
If she did act in these type of films as a police officer, I think it speaks to the larger issue of compensation, more than conduct unbecoming.
I will agree that it’s not the best look for law enforcement officers to be staring in pornos. But it’s far less disturbing than officers who actually violate police protocol and kill unarmed citizens on the job.
