Jeffrey Jones was arrested last week because he failed to update his sex offender registration. Within five days of his birthday he was supposed to update his records but he did not. The fact that his birthday was last September, but he was only arrested for this violation last week scares me. That means almost a year went by where he could have been targeting other kids. Although he is fairly well known as a sex offender think about most who are not known. They move, do not update their address to the authorities and when a neighbor looks at that sex offender list online does not see there is a sex offender living next door.
To me, this should be given a greater priority than the police who sit on Wilshire and Sunset all day looking for people talking on their cell phones to give them a $20 ticket. Jones, who is best known for playing Principal Rooney in Ferris Bueller is set to be arraigned on July 14. He was on 3 years probation for taking naked photos of a 14 year old boy.
