Ironic, isn’t it? Famous for directing countless hit television series, including “Law and Order,” Jason “Jace” Alexander pled guilty to felony charges of promoting and possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child in the state of New York. However, this was not a typical negotiated guilty plea — instead, Alexander entered an “open plea” in January meaning that there was no agreement between him & the prosecution for a recommended sentence.
Former “Law & Order” director Jason Alexander sentenced after pleading guilty to child pornography charges
Sentenced to 10 years probation after facing 7 years in prison
Alexander was charged in July 2015 when the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office discovered child pornography linked to the IP address of his home computer in Dobbs Ferry, New York
Arrested last summer after official found digital pornography files on his computers & external hard drives
Hard drives showed children under 16 engaged in pornography
Oddly, Alexander didn’t learn much after directing numerous episodes of “Law and Order” on Law and Order.
Alexander is also accused of having a video file of a young girl of 6 – 8 years old performing a sexual act on herself
Accused of making the video available for viewing in late June on the Torrent network
