BANGOR, Maine — The jury-waived trial of local DJ Dana Wilson on a charge of child pornography possession has been delayed until June 2, nearly two years after he was indicted, according to the clerk’s office at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

Wilson , 63, of Brewer was to be tried Thursday before Superior Court Justice William Anderson but the examination of his computer was delayed.

The trial was delayed to allow a computer expert hired by the defense to examine Wilson’s computer, according to Wilson’s attorney, Hunter Tzovarras of Bangor.

Attorneys and experts working for a defendant must view images of child pornography in a secure location, according to Michael Robert, deputy district attorney for Penobscot County. The trial was delayed so a time and place could be arranged at the Bangor police station, when it’s forensic computer expert was available.

“We can’t obviously hand out child pornography the way we can other kinds of discovery materials,” Roberts said. “The expert will be given privacy but we had to schedule it so it was convenient for Bangor police, where the defense expert will be given access to Mr. Wilson’s computer.”

The judge in January allowed Wilson to withdraw his no contest plea and go to trial.

Tzovarras told the judge Jan. 3, when a hearing to withdraw the plea was held, that Wilson wanted to take the action “because he is innocent of the offense and believes he did not fully understand the state’s burden [of proof], potential issues for defense, and consequences of a no-contest plea.”

The defense attorney said at the hearing that there was nothing in the police report to indicate that Wilson sought out the material, and he never confessed to the police.

Wilson pleaded no contest on May 23, 2013 before District Court Judge Greg Campbell to one count of possession of sexually explicit material, a Class C crime, as his jury-waived trial was about to begin.

On Aug. 19, the day before he was to be sentenced, Wilson fired his previous attorney, Jeffrey Silverstein of Bangor. Silverstein said Wilson sent him an email dismissing him without mentioning a reason.

Roberts said in August that he would recommend the judge sentence Wilson to between 2½ and three years in prison with all but six to nine months suspended. Roberts also said he would urge the judge to impose two years of probation.

Monitoring of child pornography sites by law enforcement officials outside Maine led to an Internet address belonging to Wilson in February 2011, according to a previously published report. He was indicted by a Penobscot County grand jury in June 2012.

Wilson was inducted into the Maine Sports Hall of Fame in May 2012 for his basketball feats at Bangor’s Husson College, now Husson University, where he graduated in 1974. That honor was revoked May 29, 2013, by the hall’s board of directors, according to a previously published report.

The DJ remains free on $1,000 unsecured bail with conditions that include having no contact with children under the age of 16.

Wilson, who has no prior criminal record, faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 on the charge if convicted.
