Television director Jason “Jace” Alexander—not to be confused with Seinfeld star Jason Alexander—was arrested in New York on Wednesday on child pornography charges, CBS New York reports.
In addition to directing 32 episodes of Law & Order, Alexander is the Second Vice-President of the Director’s Guild of America and is credited for 18 episodes of Rescue Me.
According to Westchester County prosecutors, an investigator was able to download child pornography from an IP address determined to be assigned to the director’s house. From The Wrap:
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 who are less than 16 years of age engaged in child pornography, according to the DA.
Alexander now faces one felony count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one felony count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.
If convicted, he reportedly faces up to seven years in prison.
