New York — A television director with credits on Law & Order has been arrested in suburban New York on child pornography charges.

Westchester County authorities say 51-year-old Jason "Jace" Alexander was charged with promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene performance by a child.

Prosecutors tell the Journal News that digital files showing minors engaged in sex acts were found on computers at the director's Dobbs Ferry home.

Alexander was arraigned on Wednesday and released on $10 000 bail. Information on his lawyer was not immediately available. Alexander is due back in court on 19 November.

If convicted, he faces up to seven years in prison.

Alexander has directed more than a dozen episodes of Law & Order since the mid-1990s. He's also done work on The Blacklist and Rescue Me.
