Jeffrey Jones: A Life Less Ordinary…Because He’s a Sex Offender

Thursday, July 1 by

I’ll take a one-way ticket to Bangkok, please.

Ferris Bueller always said Principal Rooney was a bad guy. Turns out, he was right.

Actor Jeffrey Jones, best known for his roll as Principal Rooney in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, was arrested (again) for failing to register as a sex offender (again). Jones’ sex-offender status stems from an incident in 2003 where the actor was caught with child pornography. He also paid a then 14-year-old boy, Cameron Frye, to pose for pornographic pictures.

What makes this case so galling is that it all could have been avoided if Jones would have had enough consideration to explore his dark urges in Thailand, like a decent human being. For shame, Jeffrey. For shame.

Now, please enjoy these out-of-context quotes from Jones’ character in Ferris Bueller‘s Day Off, which are much funnier now that he’s a known sex offender. (Cinema Blend)

See the quotes after the jump.

"I did not achieve this position in life by having some snot-nosed punk leave my cheese out in the wind."

"Between grief and nothing… I’ll take grief."

"How would you feel about another *year* on high school? Under my close personal supervision."

"I don’t trust this kid any further than I can throw him."

"What is so dangerous about a character like Ferris Bueller is he gives good kids bad ideas."
