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

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

Jeffrey Jones -- who played Principal Rooney in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" -- turned 64-years-old today ... and he celebrated by pleading guilty to a new charge in his ongoing sex offender case.


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.

Where are all these perverts coming from? They've all realized that all they are going to get is a slap on the wrist & it's worth it to them. Personally, I think anyone who does this to a child is just as bad as a murderer. They have ruined that child for life, sure the innocent child may move on in life, but that child will NEVER FORGET what the sicko did to him/her NEVER!!! You took away a child's spirit, made them afraid and violated them in a cruel way for your own sick pleasure? Death Penalty to all sex offenders!!!! But then again, all the bible thumpers and weirdo's will be offended and start showing their ignorant a$$es over the sex offenders rights - and not the child. Let one of these POS come near any of my neices or nephews & the POS will get the death penalty my way!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ridiculous. More celebrity justice. He should be put in jail for three in general population.

I could have sworn it was a young boy that he was taking pictures of.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

If any celebrity looks like a pedophile, it's him. Too bad he won't receive poetic justice in prison.

This guy has always bothered me. There is a scene in Stuart Little where it looks like he is grabbing the little boy actor's read end. I wish TMZ would look that clip up and investigate.

At least he apologized for ruining the boy's life and his own family's lives too. And he paid off the kid. As opposed to Paul Reubens who paid a fortune to lawyers to keep his conviction a misdemeanor instead of the felony it deserved to be. The third adult male there was tossed in jail. It should have been a three-way cell.
