BANGOR — A former Maine college basketball star has been found guilty of a child pornography charge.

Dana Wilson pleaded no contest Thursday in a Bangor courtroom. The plea means while not admitting guilt, he is not contesting the charges. The judge then found him guilty.

Authorities say the 62-year-old Wilson, who works as a disc jockey, had videos of young girls engaged in sexual behavior on his computer.

Wilson’s lawyer says his client wanted to avoid putting family members through a trial.

He is scheduled to be sentenced July 16. Prosecutors say they will likely recommend a six-month sentence.

Wilson, who averaged an NCAA Division III leading 35 points per game during his senior season at Husson College in 1973-74, was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame in 2011.
