One of the most memorable movies of '80s is Ferris Bueller's Day Off, in which protagonist Ferris squares off with uptight Principal Rooney, played by Jeffrey Jones, a character actor who played no shortage of cinematic villains and supporting characters throughout the 1980s and 1990s. While so many of the actors and actresses from the film continued on to have great careers, Jones's life and career have taken a different direction.
Unfortunately, the movie industry has no lack of celebrity sex offenders, and Jeffrey Jones has earned his place for taking nude photos of a 14-year-old boy and for possessing child pornography. He also then violated the terms of his probation by failing to update his information on the offender registry. Like other celebrities who evaded jail time, Jones received what some have criticized as a light punishment for his crimes, but his career hasn't recovered since allegations of abuse came to light, following his arrest.
