"Ed Rooney" Actor Arrested

Posted By Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney || 9-Jul-2010

Jeffrey Jones, the now 63 year old actor who infamously portrayed Ed Rooney, the principal in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, was arrested again after failing to update his sex offender registration status. He posted $20,000 bail and was released.

He was arrested in 2003 for child pornography possession and for employing a minor to pose for pornographic photos. Both are felony charges. J

ones and his lawyer were able to negotiate a plea bargain in which the child pornography charges were dropped and Jones pleaded no contest to the second charge.

A no contest plea is neither an admission of guilt nor a denial of it; it will, however, result in similar consequences and penalties fo a guilty plea. Jones was required to register as a lifetime sex offender and was sentenced to 5 years probation.

Jones was also arrested in 2004 for failing to update his sex offender registration status.
