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.

  • Michael Jackson

    I was his biggest fan!

  • JPX

    No wonder Ferris skipped school! Principal Rooney is a pedophile.

  • Brett

    That’s too bad. Talented actor – great in “Amadeus” and “Beetlejuice,” among other films.

    • SteevoNYC

      Let’s not forget Howard the Duck…

      • Meier

        And Houseguest.

  • PJM

    That’ll teach him to leave his cheese out in the wind.

    • Ann

      now that’s funny.

  • Deb

    Can’t watch Beetlejuice, Amadeus, Ferris Buller’s Day Off or Legend of Sleepy Hollow anymore. What a creep!

    • ActingCrazy

      Seriously, when do you REALLY make decisions on what to like or dislike based on what they do off-camera? Or not follow sports teams because they have a bad guy or two? If you say “yes” than you are a total liar to yourself and the rest of the world!

      Yeah, Jeffery’s a skeeve, but “Ferris” is still freakin’ hysterical!

      • CommonSenseAthiest

        ActingCrazy – Some of us do avoid movies, sports teams, music, products, stores, etc becuase of the behavior of the actors, players, producers, use of sweatshops, etc. I would not call Deb a liar becuase it is the truth, I do the exact same thing. You could not pay me to listen to a Chris Brown song, I don’t shop at WalMart and my daughter does not watch or listen to Hannah Montana. I have a life and can spend my money and time on more positive activities and outlets.

        I agree with Deb. Beetlejuice has been a favorite on mine since childhood, and I’m not sure I’ll be able to watch it again. Personally, I can’t sit through five minutes of Powder, or Jeepers Creepers when they’re on TV, directed by another pedophile, Victor Salva, without feeling like I have to barf. Is there a more sickening crime imaginable than child sexual abuse? I really don’t understand the lax punishments for these worthless pieces of human excrement. Pedophiles can’t get better. They can only continue to destroy innocent souls. They all should be getting 20 to life. I watch movies for escape, and these are exactly the types of things I don’t want to be thinking about.

    • Mary

      Sorry, I’m still watching all of those movies because they are great and they have nothing to do with his scandal.

      • N-j

        No need to be sorry…good answer!

    • Zach

      Yeah, I get hating Mel Gibson and avoiding his movies, but I’m never going to stop watching Beetlejuice, one of my favorite movies, for something this guy who’s merely in a supporting role in the movie did years later.

  • Grim Reaper

    Come with me….

  • Stephanie T.

    Ok so in real life Mr. Rooney REALLY likes Ferris Bullier. It’s gross, but it’s nothing new.

  • lily

    OMG!!!!!! I am not very sure about this. But recently, I really came across a hot dating site ***** MATxxxCHxxxRICH.CxxxOxxxM***** It’s a nice and free site where rich singles or their admires seek love, fun, friends!!! . Maybe you will meet something unexpected.

  • Anton4177

    Nine times…

  • Sara

    I don’t care….he’s still very sexy!!!!!

  • MrObviousGuy

    Yet, Roman Polanski drugs and rapes a 13 year old girl, becomes a fugitive from justice, and still has many of Hollywood’s elites backing him.
