Jeffrey Jones, best known for playing the bumbling Principal Rooney in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” pleaded guilty in Los Angeles Tuesday to a felony charge of failing to update his sex offender registry info.

The 64-year-old actor escaped a possible 3-year jail sentence in state prison, but must now serve three years of probation and perform 250 hours of roadside clean-up, TMZ first reported.

In July 2003, Jones pleaded no contest to hiring a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photos, according to City News Service.

"I'm sorry that this incident was allowed to occur. Such an event has never happened before and it will never happen again," Jones reportedly said then.

As a result of the case, he was sentenced to five years probation and was required to register annually as a sex offender.

Jones was arrested June 23 after failing to update his registration for 2009.

He has appeared in more than 60 roles on the silver and small screens.
