Sentencing has been delayed again for a man who pleaded no contest to possessing child pornography. 62-year-old Dana Wilson of Brewer was supposed to be sentenced Tuesday, but instead, he asked for a court appointed attorney. Wilson told the judge he had concerns about how his case has been handled, and he had limited time with his lawyer, Jeff Silverstein. Silverstein says he feels the complete opposite about how the case has been handled. State prosecutors agree.”I’m confident that it has been. Mr. Silverstein is an excellent attorney. He’s given a lot of time to this case. But, if we deal with it now, we give Mr. Wilson what he’s requested today, over a short period of time, it may foreclose him from having any other evidence of complaining in the long run,” said Deputy District Attorney, Mike Roberts.”I wouldn’t indicate that there’s been a stall, although I would agree that there’s been a pattern of a lack of progress, despite many scheduled appearances. I was intent on recommending a suspended sentence for Mr. Wilson, and I’m certain that was in accord with what he wanted,” said defense attorney, Jeff Silverstein.The judge agreed to get wilson a new laywer.Wilson is expected to be in court again within three weeks.
