Jones gets probation for kiddie porn

July 9, 2003 at 12:54 PM

LOS ANGELES, July 9 (UPI) -- Actor Jeffrey Jones pleaded no contest in a Los Angeles court to inducing a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photographs.

Best known for his portrayal of a high school dean in the film, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," Jones was in court Tuesday on the charges, and was sentenced to five years probation and ordered to register as a sex offender.

The Los Angeles Times said Jones paid a boy twice to pose nude for photographs he took at his Hollywood Hills home. During the sessions that began in 2000, Jones persuaded the boy, identified in court records as Steven C., to pose naked with a cowboy hat and a stuffed animal, and as an Indian.

With the parents of the victim watching, Los Angeles County Superior Judge David Horwitz also ordered the 56-year-old actor to undergo a year of counseling and two years of drug and alcohol counseling. The judge also barred him from possessing pornography.
