Jones' Sex Offender Case Continued Until August
FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF star JEFFREY JONES will have to wait another month to answer allegations he failed to re-register as a sex offender - the case has been continued until 18 August (10).
The actor was arrested in 2003 after he was caught in possession of child pornography and for employing a 14-year-old boy to pose for inappropriate images.
The possession of child pornography charge was subsequently dropped after Jones pleaded no contest to inducing a minor to pose for sexually explicit photographs. He was sentenced to five years' probation and ordered to register as a sex offender every year.
But Jones was taken into custody last month (Jun10) after allegedly failing to update the register on his 63rd birthday in September (09).
Jones was freed on $20,000 (£13,330) bail and he appeared in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday morning (14Jul10), when a judge put the case on hold until August.
However, the actor, who faces up to three years in jail if he is found guilty, is confident his name will be cleared because he has "done everything" required of him.
And he is eager for the case to be resolved.
Jones tells TMZ.com, "I think I've done everything that I have to do, I have to accept what it is. (But) I'm not gonna get into it because frankly I want this thing to just (disappear)."
