Jason Alexander was charged on two counts.

Law & Order director Jason "Jace" Alexander was arrested Wednesday in New York on child pornography charges, according to the Westchester County District Attorney.

Alexander, who lives in Dobbs Ferry, was charged with felony counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child after allegedly file-sharing "illegal and obscene performances of sexual conduct by children less than 17 years of age."

According to the press release from the DA's office, the office began its investigation July 24 after determining that the IP address associated with the illegal activity was assigned to Alexander's home.

After a search warrant was granted, the press release states, the director's home was searched and "examination of computers and external hard drives removed from the location revealed digital files of children who are less than 16 years of age engaged in child pornography."

The director's bail is set at $10,000, and he is set for a court appearance Nov. 19 at Dobbs Ferry Village Court.

If convicted, Alexander faces a maximum sentence of seven years in state prison.

He worked on Law & Order from 1994 to 2005.
