According to Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore, Alexander was charged "for possessing and file-sharing illegal and obscene performances of sexual conduct by children less than 17 years of age.”

The longtime producer and director, and son of legendary actress Jane Alexander, has directed over 30 episodes of NBC’s long-running crime drama, as well as episodes of The Blacklist and Rescue Me. He was charged with one count of promoting a sexual performance by a child and one count of possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child after an investigator traced a July 24 download of a child pornography to his home.
