Former "Law & Order" director Jason "Jace" Alexander has been sentenced to 10 years probation after pleading guilty to child pornography charges earlier this year. He must also register as a sex offender in New York.
Alexander, 52, was arrested last summer in Westchester County after officials found digital pornography files on computers and external hard drives at his Dobbs Ferry home. The files showed children younger than 16 years of age engaged in child pornography, authorities have said.
Alexander pleaded guilty in January to one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, both felonies.
Alexander has directed nearly three dozen episodes of "Law and Order" since the mid-1990s. He is also known for his work on "Rescue Me" and "Carry Me Home." He and his wife have three children.
