BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A former Maine college basketball star and well-known local party disc jockey has been convicted of child pornography charges.

Dana Wilson of Brewer was convicted Tuesday at a jury-waived trial at the Penobscot Judicial Center in Bangor.

Prosecutors say child pornography was found on Wilson’s home computer in 2011.

Wilson’s attorney said someone else could have used the computer to download the illegal material.

The 63-year-old Wilson’s attorney says his client maintains his innocence despite the verdict, and plans to appeal. Wilson is free on bail pending sentencing scheduled for July 23.

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 He was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame in 2012, but his induction was revoked last year.
