TV director Jace Alexander has resigned from his position as second vice president of the Directors Guild of America following his July 29 arrest in connection with the possession and file-sharing of child pornography.

The DGA said Monday that it will elect a new second vice president at its October national board meeting.

Alexander 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, facing a maximum of seven years in state prison.

After a Westchester County D.A.’s office investigator downloaded child pornography from an IP address in Westchester County, authorities determined that the IP address came from Alexander’s home. Police then executed a search warrant on Alexander’s home, finding digital files of children less than 16 years of age in child pornography on computers and hard drives.

Alexander posted $10,000 bail last week and is expected in court on Nov. 19.

Along with directing more than 30 episodes of “Law & Order,” Alexander also worked on “The Blacklist,” “The Practice,” “Rescue Me” and, most recently, “Coop.”
