Hollywood director Jason “Jace” Alexander, who is best know for directing several episodes of Law & Order, was arrested on Wednesday, July 30, on some very serious and disturbing charges.
Multiple sources have confirmed that the 42-year-old was arrested on child pornography charges and 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,” according to E! News.
Alexander has directed 52 episodes of NBC’s highly popular drama and, according to Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore, he was charged “for possessing and file-sharing illegal and obscene performances of sexual conduct by children less than 17 years of age” after an investigator was able to trace a July 24 download to 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,” a press release of the arrest stated.
Alexander’s bail was set for $10,000 and is set to appear in court on November 19. If he is convicted of the charges, he will face up to seven years in prison.
