US actor Jeffrey Jones, who appeared in the film Ferris Bueller's Day Off, has been charged with failing to update his sex offender registration information.

The 63-year-old pleaded no contest in 2003 in Florida to employing a 14-year-old boy to pose for sexually explicit photos.

A year later he was arrested for failing to register as a sex offender.

The star is best known for playing the head teacher in the 1986 cult movie, starring Matthew Broderick.

A spokesman for the actor was unavailable to comment.

He is due to appear in court on 14 July.
