Wilson was indicted October 6 on three second-degree felony charges of possession with intent to promote child pornography, according to the Plano, Texas, Star-Courier. The 38-year-old chef, a Plano resident, is due in court on October 27.
Wilson was initially arrested on December 7, 2010, after undercover investigators say they received several file transfers from Wilson via the peer-to-peer file-sharing service Limewire. The files recieved allegedly contained images and videos of children, some as young as toddlers, engaged in inappropriate acts. A subsequent search of Wilson's home yielded signed and dated pornographic images he admitted he had viewed.
He was released on $10,000 bail and ordered not to use computers without supervision.
Wilson is also a father of a young son.
