Jason "Jace" Alexander — not the Seinfeld guy, but the TV actor and director best known for his Law & Order affiliation — has been arrested in New York for allegedly sharing child-pornography videos, according to the New York Post. Alexander, 50, has reportedly been charged with "felony counts of promoting and possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child." CBS notes that the Westchester County DA's office was able to download pornography of preteen and teenage girls that originated from an IP address linked to Alexander's home. After obtaining a search warrant and sifting through data on Alexander's computers, the DA's suspicions of illegal activity there were confirmed. The Post reports that Alexander had allegedly made the video available to other internet users in late June via the Torrent network. He was arraigned Wednesday and posted a $10,000 cash bail. Alexander, a husband and father of two, is due in court November 19 and, according to CBS, could face a maximum sentence of seven years in state prison if convicted.
