Hoops Star's Maine Hall of Fame Induction Revoked
06/18/2013 03:46 PM ET  

A judge last month found Dana Wilson, 62, guilty of charges in connection with child pornography found on his computer, and he is now awaiting sentencing.

BANGOR, Maine (AP) _ The Maine Sports Hall of Fame has revoked the induction of a former college basketball star following his conviction on a child pornography charge.

Sixty-two-year-old Dana Wilson of Brewer was inducted into the hall in May 2012 for his basketball accomplishments at Bangor's Husson College, where he graduated in 1974. Wilson averaged nearly 35 points a game his senior year, best among all NCAA Division III schools that year.

A month after his induction, he was arrested on allegations of having child pornography on his computer.

A judge found him guilty last month after he pleaded no contest. Sentencing is scheduled for July.

Soon after Wilson was convicted, the Hall of Fame board of directors voted unanimously to revoke his induction.
