BANGOR — A former Maine college basketball star convicted of possessing child pornography has been sentenced to nine months in prison.

A judge on Monday sentenced Dana Wilson of Brewer to 2½ years, but suspended most of the sentence. Wilson is being allowed to remain free pending an appeal.

Wilson was a well-known disc jockey at school dances and former member of the Maine Sports Hall of Fame. WZON-AM reports that he told the judge that he’s a “pretty good person” who’s lost everything except the love of his parents. He said he’ll probably never see his children again.

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 His induction into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame has been revoked.
