Jason “Jace” Alexander, an actor-turned-director whose credits include several episodes of “Law & Order,” has been sentenced to 10 years probation after pleading guilty to child pornography charges earlier this year.

Alexander, 52, must also register as a sex offender in New York, a court ruled on Tuesday. He had faced up to seven years in prison.

He was arrested last summer in Westchester County after officials found digital pornography files on computers and external hard drives at his Dobbs Ferry home.

The files showed children younger than 16 years of age engaged in child pornography, authorities have said.

The district attorney’s office said at the time that an investigator downloaded child porn from an IP address in Westchester County, which an investigation revealed was assigned to Alexander’s home.

Alexander is the son of Jane Alexander, the Emmy- and Tony-winning actress (“The Great White Hope,” “Kramer vs. Kramer”) who served as head of the National Endowment of the Arts during the first terms of President Bill Clinton.

In addition to 32 episodes of “Law & Order,” Jace Alexander has directed episodes of “Rescue Me,” “Royal Pains” “The Blacklist” and “I Just Want My Pants Back.”

Alexander started work as an actor on stage and screen, with credits including “Crocodile Dundee II,” “Clueless” and “Eight Men Out.”
