‘Law & Order’ Director Jason Alexander Pleads Guilty to Child Porn Charges

Defendant faces up to 7 years in prison

A director whose credits include several episodes of “Law & Order” has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges, the Westchester County District Attorney’s office said Tuesday.

Jason “Jace” Alexander, of Dobbs Ferry, New York, pleaded guilty to one count of promoting a sexual performance and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, both felonies. The charges stem from possessing and file-sharing illegal and obscene performances of sexual conduct by children less than 17 years old.

Alexander, who remains out on bail, is scheduled to be sentenced on May 3. He faces a maximum sentence of seven years in state prison.

Alexander was arrested in July, after an investigator downloaded child porn from an IP address in Westchester County, which an investigation revealed was assigned to Alexander’s home.

After a search warrant was executed at Alexander’s home address, a forensic examination of computers and external hard drives removed from the location revealed digital files of children engaged in child pornography, according to the DA.
