Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” star Jeffrey Jones has been charged with a felony after failing to update his registration as a sex offender in California, the L.A. Times reported Wednesday.

Jones, 63, was arrested last week on suspicion of failing to renew his registration within five days of his last birthday, Sept. 28, 2009, the Times said.

In 2003, Jones was placed on five years probation and was ordered to register as a sex offender, in addition to mandatory counseling, after he pleaded no contest to inducing a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photographs.

Jones, who is best known for his role as Principal Ed Rooney in “Ferris Beuller’s Day Off,” also appeared in “Beetlejuice,” “The Devil’s Advocate” and “Amadeus.”
