Television director Jace Alexander, best known for his work on “Law & Order,” was sentenced to ten years probation on child pornography charges, according to the Associated Press. Alexander was sentenced on Tuesday in New York after pleading guilty to promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child.

Alexander, who had faced up to seven years in prison, must now register as a sex offender in New York. On July 24, 2015, an investigator from the Westchester County DA’s office had downloaded child pornography from an IP address in Westchester. Authorities later found that the IP address came from Alexander’s Dobbs Ferry home.

Following his July 29, 2015, arrest Alexander resigned from his position as second vice president of the DGA. Brooke Kennedy (“Third Watch,” “The Good Wife”) took up the second VP position after his resignation. In turn, Matthew Penn (“Royal Pains”) filled Kennedy’s seat on the 21-member national board.

    oh the irony….

    Sure leave him out free to go and rape a child because if he hasn’t already done so that is what he will do next and they’ll have that judge to thank for that and why all for the mighty dollar!!!

    • Dave J says:

      Hey, I’m just as disgusted as you but if he didn’t physically touch a child then the charge is different! according to the article he performed a lewd act from his phone or computer which is not the same as any physical predators of Smart Duggey or anyone else for that matter!

  3. Dave says:

    What a joke. Any regular citizen would be upstate for the 7 years. he got a plea bargain because of connections. So shut up people..it is a Hollywood insider deal even it did take place in NY. he got off because he has money like all the vile celebrities do. Hollywood is a mecca of scum.

  4. Juice says:

    So another Hollywood pedo escapes jail time for the vilest of crimes. Absolutely disgusting and shameful. I could not possibly care less for any “causes” originating from as disgusting a place as Hollywood and its inhabitants. True Sodom.

    • deconcerte says:

      You know nothing about Hollywood and the hard working people that live in that LA district. And if you took the time to read the article you’d see Alexander’s vile deeds were done in upper state New York in the “suburb” of Westchester.

    • Marci says:

      Yeah, and as usual, he’s probably a “christian” and a “republicon.”

      • Chad says:

        Lol you can’t even spell republican

      • Aliyah says:

        You’re a bigot.

      • Thom Jones says:

        Marci, what a dumb foolish partisan comment. He’s a Democrat (not that political leanings have anything to do with this) but your dumb comment shows how people like you say any ridiculous item to smear other groups you don’t like. He’s the son of famous Democrat Jane Alexander (who is the chair of the National Endowment of the Arts). You’d look less ignorant of it were in fact, true, but it’s not.
