BANGOR — A former Maine college basketball star accused of having child pornography on his computer has been released on $1,000 bail and ordered to have no unsupervised contact with anyone under 16.

A judge Wednesday continued the case of 61-year-old Dana Wilson of Brewer because the prosecuting attorney was unavailable.

Wilson was indicted by a Penobscot County Grand Jury last month for possessing sexually explicit images of underage girls.

Authorities say there is no evidence local children were involved.

Wilson’s lawyer says his client is “firm in his conviction that he … did not play a role in this.”

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 this year.

He also has a disc jockey business and has provided music for dances sponsored by Brewer Parks and Recreation and area schools for many years, according to Brewer police.
