MIAMI – A Miami police officer is the subject of an internal investigation that includes allegations that she performed in pornographic movies while serving as a cop.
Local 10 News obtained copies of some of the films featuring Officer Sabine Raymonvil, 30, an eight-year veteran of the Miami Police Department.
Among those she performs sex acts with in the clips is Emerson Callum, a pornographer who is now serving a life sentence in federal prison after being convicted of drugging and raping women who auditioned for his company in 2012.
Also convicted in that case was Callum's partner and cameraman, Lavont Flanders, a former Miami Beach police officer. Callum had been charged with similar crimes in 2007, but he was not prosecuted.
Raymonvil refused to answer questions while on camera, but later telephoned the station and said that her work in porn films was done prior to her becoming a police officer.
"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 alleged that Raymonvil appeared in the porn films well into her tenure as a cop. Her social media postings show a woman who enjoys the club life, sporting photos of Raymonvil with Snoop Dogg, football player Daunte Culpepper, actor Idris Elba, actor Laz Alonso, Hollywood film director John Singleton and Miami Commissioner Kion Hardemon, among others.
There are no direct rules forbidding officers from engaging in pornography, but it could fall under other common police policies such as conduct unbecoming. In 2009, a Hollywood police officer named Mike Verdugo was fired after it was discovered he'd appeared in a single gay porn film three years prior to his becoming a cop. The reason for that firing was that he failed to disclose he made the film in his application to become an officer.
The Miami Police Department, citing an open investigation, refused to comment.

Most porn movies are shot in Los Angeles, but that's not where Americans watch the most "adult entertainment," according to a new survey. Men's Health examined the number of porn DVDs purchased, rented, or streamed; adult entertainment stores per city; rate of porn searches; and percentage of Cinemax-subscribing households to determine the country's smuttiest cities.
