'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' Actor Charged With Violating Sex Crime Probation

The Los Angeles Times has reported that "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" actor Jeffrey Jones is facing another charge related to child pornography sex crimes he committed between 2000 and 2003. Jones has been charged with a single felony count of failing to update his registration as a sex offender.

On June 23, the 63-year-old was arrested on suspicion of failing to renew his sex offender registration as required by Megan's Law. Jones had been required by the state of California to renew the registration within five days of his September 28, 2009 birthday. He was released after posting $20,000 bail.

In 2003, Jones pleaded no contest to paying a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photographs. Probation officials had recommended a suspended sentence and three years' probation for Jones.

On two occasions, Jones paid the boy to pose nude for photos he took in his home. The victim told police that he met Jones through another producer of child pornography. The boy told police that his uncle brought him to the other photographer who had paid him to pose naked for photographs and had sexually abused him.

Jones played the part of the high school dean in the 1986 movie, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." He's also had significant roles in other popular movies. Jones played the role of Winona Ryder's father in "Beetlejuice" and the emperor in "Amadeus."
