WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.  — A television director with credits on “Law & Order” and other shows has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in New York.

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore says 51-year-old Jason “Jace” Alexander pleaded guilty Tuesday to promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene performance by a child.

Prosecutors say digital files showing minors engaged in sex acts were found on computers at the director’s Dobbs Ferry, New York, home.

He could face up to seven years in prison when he is sentenced on May 3.

Alexander had directed more than a dozen episodes of “Law & Order” since the mid-1990s. He also did work on “The Blacklist” and “Rescue Me.”
