Child Porn

BANGOR, Maine (AP) – The trial is underway for a former Maine college basketball star who faces child pornography charges.

Dana Wilson of Brewer, who’s a well-known disc jockey at school dances and former member of the Maine Sports Hall of Fame, was standing trial Monday before a judge after withdrawing a no contest plea in January.

The state contends illicit materials were found on Wilson’s home computer. But WZON-AM says the defense contends someone besides Wilson could’ve downloaded the materials.

The trial could wrap up Tuesday, but it’s unclear when the judge will rule.

Wilson averaged an NCAA Division III best nearly 35 points a game his senior year at Husson College in 1974. He was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame in 2012, but his induction has been revoked.
