Jeffrey Jones faces felony charge
Los Angeles prosecutors have charged actor Jeffrey Jones, best known for his role as Principal Rooney in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, with failing to update his sex offender registration information, according to the Associated Press. Jones pleaded no contest in 2003 to a felony charge stemming from his hiring of a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit snapshots. A Los Angeles judge sentenced the actor to five years probation and ordered him to undergo counseling and be placed on a registry of sex offenders for the rest of his life.
The AP reports that Jones was arrested on June 23 and charged on Wednesday. He will be arraigned July 14.
