Television director and producer Jason "Jace" Alexander has been arrested and charged for possessing and sharing child pornography in Dobbs Ferry, New York.

Alexander is charged with one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child, both felonies, for possessing and file-sharing illegal and obscene performances of sexual conduct by children less than 17 years of age, the Westchester County District Attorney's Office announced.

An investigator with the D.A.'s office downloaded child porn from an IP address in the county that originated from Alexander's residence on July 24, 2015, which prompted an investigation.

A forensic examination of computers and hard drives seized from the home during the execution of a search warrant yielded digital files of children younger than 16 engaged in pornographic activity.

Alexander was subsequently arrested and was charged on Wednesday. He was arraigned and is due back in court on Nov. 19.

Alexander has directed episodes of "Law & Order," "Rescue Me," "Scorpion," "Burn Notice" and "The Blacklist," among others; and produced episodes of "Royal Pains" and "Warehouse 13," among others.
