The 51-year-old could face up to seven years in prison when he is sentenced on May 3.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A television director with credits on Law & Order and other shows has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in New York.

Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore says 51-year-old Jason "Jace" Alexander pleaded guilty Tuesday to promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene performance by a child.

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

He could face up to seven years in prison when he is sentenced on May 3.

Alexander had helmed more than a dozen episodes of Law & Order since the mid-1990s. He also did work on The Blacklist and Rescue Me.
