LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) Actor Jeffrey Jones, who played the principal in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," is charged with failing to update his sex offender registration information in Los Angeles, according to prosecutors.

Los Angeles County district attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says Jones was arrested on June 23 and charged on Wednesday.

Jones, who's 63, pleaded no contest in 2003 in Florida to a felony charge of employing a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photos. He was arrested in 2004 for failing to register as a sex offender there.

Jones may be best-known as the principal in John Hughes' 1986 comedy "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," but his many film credits include roles in "Bettlejuice" and "Sleepy Hollow."

An e-mail from The Associated Press seeking comment from his management company was not immediately returned.

He is due to be arraigned on July 14.
