Jeffrey Jones gets probation & community service for sex offender violation

Jeffrey Jones, who starred as Principal Ed Rooney in the 1986 movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, has gotten sentenced to three years probation and 250 hours of community service after failing to update his sex offender registration upon moving.

He was first arrested in 2003, after he was caught paying a 14-year-old boy to pose for graphic pictures and being in possession of child pornography. The child porn charge was dropped after he pleaded no contest to inducing a minor to pose for the sexually explicit photos. From that, he received five years probation and was ordered to register as a sex offender every year.

He failed to update the registry on his 63rd birthday and was arrested in June, 2010. He paid $20,000 bail and appeared in court earlier today. He pleaded guilty to failing to update the sex offender registry.

He’ll now be cleaning up the sides of the roads in L.A.
