Any Ferris Bueller's Day Off fans here? Yep, loved that movie. Actor Jeffrey Jones was appropriately stalker-y and slick enough to play Principal Ed Rooney. The end scene was classic.
Anyhow, Jones ran into a little skirmish with the law a few years back when he was pinched for child porn and given 5 years probation as well as counseling and sex offender registration status. Ouch, right? You or I would probably get jail time - - and not country club jail but pound you in the ass jail (TM Office Space). As part of his harsh sentence, Jones was required to keep up with his sex offender registration . . . which he chose not to do. Guess he didn't like it.
So, rather than getting 3 years in jail (again, which you or I would easily get), because failing to keep up with your registration is a felony, Jones got 250 hours of community service and 3 years probation.
Really? Why are celebrities somehow given exceptions to the rules the rest of us must abide by? Doesn't seem fair, does it?
