In most states, when a man has to plead guilty to a sex crime, it is usually an unknown. Even in cities where high powered business people or the best lawyers get arrested for high profile crimes, no one really knows who they are or where they come from. However, when a Los Angeles Sex Crime Defense Attorney represents someone charged with such a crime, it is highly likely that individual is a household name or someone who has been on the cover of a DVD box.
Jeffrey Jones, who played Principal Rooney in the highly popular 80's teen comedy "Ferris Bueller's Day Off!" and other films, pleaded guilty to a new charge in his ongoing sex offender case. On the same day Jones turned 64 years old, he was in a Los Angeles County Superior Courtroom dealing with this crime. He pled guilty to the charge of failing to update his sex offender registration. Back in 2003, Jones pled no contest to paying a minor for the purpose of taking sexually explicit photos. Due to his conviction, he is required to register annually as a sex offender. However, he blew off his obligation and was arrested as a result. He has been sentenced to three years of formal probation and must complete 250 hours of community service in a road side clean up program. However, his lawyer did a great job for him, because he was facing a possible sentence of three years in state prison.
Getting arrested for and convicted of a sex crime might be the most difficult crime to deal with. Having to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life will impact where you live, what types of job you can have, whether or not you can join certain organizations and more.

If you have been accused of such a crime, you need a skilled, experienced Los Angeles Sex Crime Defense Attorney to represent you.
