Credit: Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times Actor Jeffrey Jones, best known for his portrayal of a high school dean in the 1986 movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," has been charged with a single felony count of failing to update his registration as a sex offender, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Jones, 63, was arrested June 23 on suspicion of failing to renew his registration with the state within five days of his last birthday, Sept. 28, 2009, said Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. He was released on $20,000 bail.

In 2003, he was ordered to register as a sex offender and undergo counseling and was placed on five years'  probation after pleading no contest to inducing a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photographs.

Jones paid a Fontana boy twice to pose nude for photographs he took at his Hollywood Hills home, according to court records. During the sessions that began in 2000, Jones persuaded the boy, identified in court records as Steven C., to pose naked with a cowboy hat and a stuffed animal and as an Indian.

Probation officials had recommended a suspended sentence and three years' probation. According to a probation report, the victim told Fontana police he met Jones through another photographer. His uncle had taken him to the other photographer, who paid him to pose naked and sexually abused him, according to the boy.

In addition to his role as Dean Rooney in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," Jones played Winona Ryder's father in the film "Beetlejuice" and the emperor in "Amadeus."

Bueller? Bueller? Buuuuelllleeeer?

Simply disgusting!! Wow he looks horrible!

Let the kids parents have about 10 minutes with him.. that will teach him.. sicko..

Such a shame.

Jeffrey Jones, you're a good actor but a bad boy.

The uncle, however, is the real criminal.

Nine times.

Wow, you just never know do you. Who is a predator.

That guy always came across as a perv to me.
Robert Vaughn Herndon

Rooney eats it

What about "Howard The Duck?" Dude looks like perv.

And wasn't Paul Reubens, aka Pee-Wee Herman, right there too? He was also put on the sexual offender list and had to plead guilty to avoid a jury trial. The third guy who was there went to jail because he didn't have Jonesa and Reubens money.

I hope the whole bunch of them get together and get sex laws dumped right back into the laps of ever perponet that ever suppoerted this law, especialy for what it has turned into to. FCC devices? Use to mark the people like dogs, encoraging less attentive caregivers and pushing off the watch onto people monitoring with their mastercyclender in hand to mace and tazer or shot with rubber bulets and kill over sex? The planning of champions? I think not! Almost 90thousand kids die each day. One every 30 secounds and these people want to sell you something to prevent sex from accuring in someones home across the street? No they don’t. It’s never been about sex and the old shame and blame game has got to end now.

My family was military.
As a child I fell from a tree and out of my shoulder came a device,
that looked much like today's rfid glass chip.
Through my life I have been put through every sort of manipulation
Population control, is an agenda and like Ruso said if they want you
out they just turn off your chip, well we keep moving toward that day.

The military and prisons have always been used to make men according
to themselves because that is what they are taught to believe. Well
they made Saddam Hussein and killed him, in their way so what does
Obama have to look forward too.

The making of villains and hero's are as fabricated by this process as
much as Hollywood would have us all believe that when looking for
information on Noriega IE:Manuel Antonio we would find a rapper.
IE:wrapper used to cover up the involvement of this complex deception.

They also have twisted the idea that religion is the good guys and non
religious people are the bad guys when fact is the use of leaders in
any nation is based on their ability to control by what ever means not
how much they love the unseen but how effective they are in
controlling the seen, people by what ever means be it the gun or the
nun with little to destingusih rolling the together control into an FCC device and sell it to the plublic by punishment plans? Insurance plans? money plans?
Set up a marriage force a person to except the will of others through
outside manipulation of events sounds like a chapter from Matchmaker
but it is as true as the people doing it and if they cant get their
way they just keep it up tell they get what they want and that spells
death, money, power, control, over life itsself?

There is no justification in a process when we are used by murderous
people lead to believe that justice has validity when its not just at
all.
Bill Ayers wrote Obama's book too explane a subject close to him?
Michelle Obama was not always Obama. The sorted tail takes us back to
the Weather Underground and the Bombing in Greenage when she to my
best understanding was put into the witness protection program and
lived in LA.
She gave bible studies to my sister who would come in throw her legs
up and say do it or I will tell. My mother had to have something to do
with this because she even sent me too elders homes to make repairs
and they would molest and she would say they will take care of you?
Having them beat me?
The Bet (see Mag) was put together by these people and I was to marry a wittness on a bet (setup) that was in contact with these people.
Even the administration tryed to get the right to set people up and
lost that in court. This was part of an ongoing scam put into place
quite likly before I was even born to make a sex offender registry
when Fox news and their new star Oprah came to the school with the
cast of the new media and my mother's drugs, drugged me in an effort to start their campaign of building a sex offender registry. Little did they know
that they were being herelded by others for their own agenda.

I was under age at the time so they needed the fall guy to make legal
the most wasteful and worthless way of money laundering on the
planet, taking and waisting lives over sex.

People were there like Mrs. Norton who I told then I would have to
play this thing out to know. Michelle Obama/Greenage in a discussion
on the couch in her apartment told me that she asks that her mother at
least be able to sleep in the Whitehouse before I said anything. She
also tole me I better answer her call or she would kill me herself?

Well I am not going to be your wipping boy any more.

The people involved at the time at LAHS were told. knew and at the
time had ideals and wanted to bring peace to the world, but it does
not take long for money and power to set in and that is why some are
placed in annexs instead of called home, the results were not expected
or accepted.
I guess by destroying others we can justify killing for oil, ruining
peoples lives and even hacking computers in the name of god.

neighbors with guns & uniforms murdering people is what the sex offender registry is & people won't support laws that allow people to do this! Moms killing kids, beheading them like some ancient sacrificial worship where a bunch of #2s need to let blood for #1? Well the next time you see god thank him for the kiddy porn some cyber cop sent to feed his family on the carcasses of their neighbors online and sell the house on TV. State sponsored terrorism & murder just like the other genocides?

It's not a mental disorder to like sex as a child, your a mental disorder for making laws and manipulating a nation by media into thinking every household should line up so some goose step when kids die at the rate of 90K per day and kids set up adults and other children, sometimes at the direction of other members of the family for fun/status/home ownership/money/deception/a new/God/Daddy/or? more time on stage at the local house of worship trying to impress #1 In the words of Stephen Hicks: Nazis thought socialism should control? not only economics but breeding, religion and other intimate details of life. End sex laws now and look after your own like you care if you can but end sex laws now.
