BANGOR — The sentencing of a former Maine college basketball star on child pornography charges has been delayed again.
Dana Wilson was scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday, but told the judge he had fired his attorney over concerns about the way his case had been handled and requested a court-appointed lawyer. The judge agreed. No new date was set.
The 62-year-old Wilson's former attorney, Jeff Silverstein, as well as the prosecutor, told WABI-TV they thought the case was handled well.
Wilson pleaded no contest in May to possessing child porn. He was scheduled to be sentenced last month but the hearing was postponed so Wilson's psychologist could testify.
Wilson averaged an NCAA Division III best nearly 35 points a game his senior year at Husson College in 1974.
