Jason Alexander, better known professionally as “Jace” Alexander, an actor and director most known for his work on the “Law and Order” series, has been sentenced to ten years of probation after a guilty child pornography conviction.

Conviction took nearly a year

Alexander must also register as a sex-offender for the state of New York. Due to the severity of the charges, he had also reportedly faced up to seven years in prison for a guilty conviction, before taking a guilty plea. According to sources, he had taken aguilty plea to the felony charges, which officially were one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

Alexander was arrested nearly a year ago in July after police traced an IP address from his home in Westchester County. Reportedly, images contained children under the age of 16 engaging in sexual acts. Beforehand, Alexander had been released on $10,000 bail.

Alexander is the son of actress Jane Alexander, who served as the director of the National Endowment for the Arts during the Clinton administration.A member and at one-point the Second Vice-President of the Director’s Guild of America, his work had included shows such as “Rescue Me,” “Royal Pains” “The Blacklist” and “I Just Want My Pants Back.” He had even served as director on children’s shows, such as the Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire” and “Phil of the Future.”

Even before being found guilty, the charges had cost Alexander a prestigious position, as he had resigned his position as Second Vice-President, a term that had only lasted two months, after his arrest last year.

He was afterwards then replaced by director, Brooke Kennedy.

Before finding work as a director, Alexander started his work in the entertainment business as an actor, with work both on stage and screen. His credits include work on the films “Crocodile Dundee II,” “Clueless” and “Eight Men Out,” as well as an appearance on a 1996 episode of “Law and Order.” In addition to this, he also had work experience as a producer.
