'Law & Order' Director: Pleads Guilty in Child Pornography Case

Breaking News

Ex "Law & Order" director Jason "Jace" Alexander entered a guilty plea on Tuesday in his child porn case.

Alexander copped to 2 charges -- promoting a sexual performance by a child and possessing an obscene performance by a child -- when he appeared in a NY state court.

Prosecutors say Alexander had child porn on the computers in his Westchester County home. He's facing up to 7 years in prison.

As we reported ... the 51-year-old was arrested last summer when an investigator tracked child porn back to Alexander's IP address.

Alexander directed more than a dozen episodes of "Law & Order."
