'Ferris Bueller' Star -- Guilty in Sex Offender Violation

9/28/2010 2:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Jones appeared in L.A. County Superior Court -- where he pled guilty to the charge of failing to update 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 last year, dude blew off his obligation and was later arrested.

Now, after entering a guilty plea, Jones has been sentenced to 3 years formal probation and must complete 250 hours of community service in a roadside clean-up program.

Not a bad deal for Jones -- considering, he was facing a possible sentence of 3 years in state prison.

IF he hasn't moved since last years registration it seems reasonable to assume his not re registering was a simple oversight, not an attempt to move to a new neighborhood and evade registering with the states sex offender registry.

If all he did was screw up and forget to register his current address that's already on file anyway 3 years probation and 200 hours community service is pretty harsh.

The intent of the sex offender registry is to be able to track the current home address of sex offenders. They have his current address so all they did was nail him on a technicality.

They could have just admonished him that he has to register every year regardless if his address changes, and if it happens again they'll throw the book at him.

Instead they wasted taxpayer $$$ on a full blown prosecution and monitoring him for the next 3 years. way to go CA! That kind of petty thinking will get your state out of debt real soon! /sarcasm

Is it just me or is there a lot more sex offenders now than there used to be? Maybe it is because we talk about it more, the Internet, Catholics (which I knew existed from growing up catholic) who knows but the bottom line they need help to remove a gene.

Let's bnot forget ubens, aka Pee Wee Herman, was part of that same bust. To avoid a trial for possession of child porn with intent to distribute, Reubens plead GUILTY. He was CONVICTED.

I love how sex offenders always tend to get away with minimal time or NO TIME. Stick this piece of **** in jail and leave him there so he can't go after any more children.
