UPDATE: E! News can confirm that Jason "Jace" Alexander pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in a Westchester County court today.

The charges against the 51-year-old included promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene performance by a child.


Alexander, who is best known for directing multiple episodes of Law & Order, was arrested Wednesday on child pornography charges.

E! News can confirm that the 42-year-old has been charged with one felony count of promoting a sexual performance by a child, as well as one felony count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore made the announcement via press release, and detailed how an investigator from her office downloaded child pornography traced back to an IP address that originated from Alexander's home.

"A forensic examination of computers and external hard drives removed from the location revealed digital files of children who are less than sixteen years of age engaged in child pornography," the press release stated.

Alexander is currently being held on $10,000 bail and is due in court on November 19. If convicted, he could face up to seven years in prison.

Aside from Law & Order fame, Alexander also made a name for himself in the television world with his work on Rescue Me and Blacklist.

Just last month, Alexander was elected the second vice-president of the Directors Guild of America. E! News reached out to both the guild and Alexander's representative. While his rep had not returned our request for comment, the guild said they currently have no comment.
