Former Law & Order director Jason “Jace” Alexander has been sentenced nearly six months after pleading guilty to child pornography charges.

According to the Associated Press, the television director was sentenced on Tuesday to 10 years probation. Alexander originally faced up to seven years in prison.

Alexander was arrested in July of 2015 on two charges of child pornography, with one felony count of promoting a sexual performance by a child, and another felony count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

According to a statement from the district attorney’s office at the time of Alexander’s arrest, a forensic examination of computers and external hard drives turned up digital files of children under 15 engaged in acts of pornography.

After being charged, Alexander was released on $10,000 bail.

In January of this year, the 52-year-old plead guilty to both charges.
