Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore says frequent Law & Order director and former Blacklist co-EP Jason “Jace” Alexander was arrested today for “possessing and file-sharing illegal and obscene performances of sexual conduct by children less than seventeen years of age.” The journeyman helmer, who was recently elected Second Vice President of the DGA, faces up to seven years behind bars for the felony charges. He was released on $10,000 bail today and is expected back in court November 19.

The arrest of Alexander came after an investigation in which police downloaded child pornography from an IP address belonging to the director on July 24. “A forensic examination of computers and external hard drives removed from the location revealed digital files of children who are less than sixteen years of age engaged in child pornography,” said DiFiore, the NY-based local DA, on Wednesday after a search was made of Alexander’s home.

The DGA told Deadline today it had no comment on the matter. However, it seems unlikely Alexander could continue in the guild gig with these charges.

Alexander directed Law & Order episodes from 1994-2005 and the pilots for Royal Pains, Burn Notice and Warehouse 13. He also helmed various episodes of FX’s Rescue Me, MTV’s I Just Want My Pants Back this year, among others projects and served as co-executive producer on NBC’s Blacklist for more than a dozen episodes from 2013-2014 and directed one episode. Alexander directed an episode of CBS’ Scorpion and the now-cancelled Backstrom this season. He co-created, EP’d and directed the DircTV comedy series Almost There.

Alexander is repped by ICM Partners, who declined comment on the arrest.
