New York — A television director with credits on Law & Order and other shows has been sentenced in New York to 10 years' probation on child pornography charges.

Jace Alexander was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene performance by a child. He had faced up to seven years in prison.

The 52-year-old must also register as a sex offender in New York.

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

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.
