TV director Jason “Jace” Alexander (not to be confused with Jason Alexander of “Seinfeld” fame) was arrested Wednesday in connection with the possession and file-sharing of child pornography.

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced the news on Wednesday afternoon. He has been charged with one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child. He faces a maximum of seven years in state prison.

On July 24 an investigator from the Westchester County DA’s office downloaded child pornography from an IP address in Westchester County. After further investigation, authorities found that the IP address came from Alexander’s home.

A search warrant was subsequently executed on Alexander’s home, where a forensic examination of computers and hard drives revealed digital files of children less than 16 years of age in child pornography.

He posted $10,000 bail and is expected in court on Nov. 19.

Alexander is known for directing more than 30 episodes of “Law & Order,” along with several episodes of “Rescue Me,” “The Blacklist” and “The Practice.” He most recently directed for DirecTV’s comedy “Coop.” He is also a second VP for the Directors Guild of America.

Alexander’s rep did not immediately respond to request for comment.

    Sketchy details leave me wondering – do Westchester County police have nothing better to do than to violate the First, Fourth and Fifth amendments to the constitution? (Excuse me for thinking their SEARCH of his computer activity and LATER seeking a warrant is highly questionable.)

  2. So terrible. I read in another article the children were as young a s six years old. I’ guess the judge doesn’t think he’s a flight risk with such low bail. Good-bye mister, helpless children are to be protected from people like you, you creep.

    • God does not see all? We have to step in doing what God would do or at least try with our lightless bodies? Does that render whoever subject to being judged by God?

  3. Junk Junk says:

    Maybe he was just conducting research for his next episode.

    • Mimi says:

      Research he shared with another pedophile? It says file sharing the child porn in order for the investigator who downloaded it from his house in Westchester . They pedos share with other pedos – that’s how they caught him.

      • 1611 King James Version of Jeremiah 5:26. For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.

    This is unbelievable. For a guy who directs a show about stopping sexual predators, he should have known better.

    • God is slack concerning his promises ? He will give to whoever what they give. Don’t people have any idea what that means? People behaving like Pharisees did to Jesus will get a good reward?

    • Moopy says:

      He really got inside the mindset of those sexual predators, but perhaps went a bit too far.

  5. Bill Reich says:

    It is ironic that one of the people who directs a show where they say that the district attorneys “prosecute the offenders” and not “prosecute the accused” is going to face trial now. My more unpleasant inner voice says he hopes the guy is innocent and is _convicted_

  6. Ima Right says:

    you mean the left wing liberal progressive don’t think child porn is okay? THEY SURE THINK THAT
    KILLING BABIES AND SELLING THEIR BODIES PARTS FOR MONEY IS OKAY USING TAX PAYER
    MONEY AND MORE UPSET ABOUT A LION BEING KILLED AND GAY MARRIAGE AND THIS NEW
    TRANSGENDER CRAP IS ALL OKAY TOO! WHAT’S NEXT FROM SICK AND PEVERTED LEFT!

  7. Darknet says:

    SVU is no doubt already writing an episode about this for sweeps.

  8. Carla says:

    What is that only $10.000 bail and faces 7 years for a video he made if a 12 year old and another of a 6 year old,is perverted and sick.
    Law has to give stiff sentences to this perverts.
    If he has children or any around him should be investigated for sexual abuse.

  9. Drinking Dave says:

    Guilty until proven innocence, I suppose

    • Carla says:

      I guess for you a 6 year old in sex acts,and the video he made of a 12 is OK till proven guilty.
      He made and share the videos.

      • the articles says he promoted, not made the video. maybe thats why the bail and possible sentence is low???? Still disgusting and im almost postive he has done more than that.

      • Let him out. Satan wanted to imprison the soul of Jesus. Did you know that? People are doing the devils will arresting and imprisoning people.

  10. Stupid ass people. All things are pornographic. People who arrest people for having what they call pornographic are at war against God for making all things to be pornographic.

  11. Let’s not forget that the amount of child porn files who have been found is not mentioned, and that “child porn” include 17-years old girls…

    • Carla says:

      The Daily Mail UK tells about a 6 and a 12 year old that he made the videos.

      • Teal says:

        Not to defend the guy (he’s scum), but The Daily Mail is a tabloid…so let’s wait and see on the details. There’s no indication in this press release that he made the videos, nor are the ages of the children involved listed.

  12. Mjkbk says:

    Where is the mention of Alexander’s mother, Jane? Hard to believe her name is being entirely embargoed from this story by the infotainment press……

  13. Lisa says:

    Somebody is abusing these children but whomever is accused is always ‘a good man’. Why is it so difficult to believe that some of these people are pedophiles?

  14. Bert Q says:

    Love wins!

    • Lisa says:

      You’re sick.

      • Moopy says:

        Apparently liberals have decided that only their definitions of “right & wrong” are valid.
        Smh below looking for “homophobia” everywhere, even though nothing was said about gays. That’s a typical libtard right there.

      • The enemy of love mindlessly attacks love trying to make loving people seem to not be loving. That same spirit makes people think the nude body is to be looked narrowly upon. The mind is damaged when they think their nude form is evil to look upon with man made things being the only acceptable things that can be seen with the naked eye. The Devil says molestation to excite other devils to chime in saying the same word thinking their numbers make them right.

      • Smh says:

        Rains Love is Love because it is mutual. But pedophilia isn’t love. It is preying on some one too young to understand anything. It is damaging to the child. That is why it is called molestation.

        Stupid homophobic argument.

    Feeling bad for Maddie Corman and her children. Her husband is possibly not master of his domain!
