Law & Order Director Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charges
Television director Jason “Jace” Alexander, who worked on Law & Order among other shows, has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges, PEOPLE confirms.
Alexander pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, a spokesman for the Westchester County district attorney’s office tells PEOPLE.
The 51-year-old was charged in July after the district attorney’s office discovered child pornography that was linked to Alexander’s IP address in Dobbs Ferry, reports The Wrap.
At the time, the D.A. released a statement detailing the nature of the pornography, revealing that examination of computer and external hard drives turned up digital files of children under 16 engaged in acts of pornography.

Alexander is scheduled to be sentenced May 3.
