'Bueller' Star Busted

Irresponsible Sex Offender

6/30/2010 7:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

When Jeffrey Jones -- the guy who played Principal Rooney in "Ferris Bueller" -- turned 63 last September, he forgot one very important birthday ritual ... updating his sex offender registration.

As you may know, back in 2003 Jones pled no contest to paying a minor for the purpose of taking sexually explicit photos ... and was required to register annually as a sex offender.

But according to the L.A. County District Attorney's Office, Jones blew off the requirement back in September ... a big no-no with officials. In fact, it's a felony.

Last Wednesday, cops finally caught up with the actor and arrested him. He was later freed on $20,000 bail. 

If convicted, Jones faces up to three years in state prison.

When I was 18 years old and living in the Hollywood Hills this creep saw me one day walking my dog in Griffith park and followed me all the way back to my house and for about a month kept driving by my apt building on a daily basis trying to get me to get in his car. We used to have a nickname for him Principal Pervo. ( I looked about 15 back then so that should give you an idea what a true perv this man is). Lock him up for life.

Paul Reubens was part of that bust. He was on the state sex offender list and plead guilty to avoid a trial. Nice role model, Pee Wee!

LIFE IS A DRAG    

Sex offense arrest and conviction
In 2003, Jones was arrested for possession of child pornography and employing a 14-year-old boy to pose for pornographic photographs. In a plea bargain, the possession of child pornography charge was dropped, and Jones pleaded no contest to inducing a minor to pose for sexually explicit photographs. He was sentenced to five years' probation, and was ordered to undergo counseling and register as a sex offender. In July 2004, he was arrested by Florida police after failing to notify them of his change of residence as required under Florida's version of Megan’s Law.[8] After the minor became an adult, he filed a civil suit against Jones in 2004,which was dismissed with prejudice at the plaintiff's request nine days after filing.

These are the types of stories I hate about TMZ. You're willing to glorify a pedophile like Michael Jackson but you're making somebody, who's clearly stayed out of the spotlight, kept his nose clean and is probably very regretful of his past transgressions into the light in a bad way. Clearly what he's done is wrong and against the law but it's not really news about a star. I know TMZ wants to be in bed with some stars so they give preferential treatment. Why don't you talk about Matthew Broderick killing two people on its anniversary? This is the kind of stuff I'm talking about. Clearly this person did wrong, that said what you're reporting on is minor at best, will see no jail time and by all appearances he's leading the life of a normal citizen. It's wrong to throw stuff in people’s faces, especially the ones you deem not as important to your success. Just my opinion and by no means do I support or make light of what he was busted for in the first place.
