Wilson, 38, was brought up on three second-degree felony charges of possession with intent to promote child pornography.

Hired as the executive pastry chef at the Ritz Carlton in Dallas in 2007, Wilson was arrested in December 2010 after undercover authorities received file transfers from the one-time reality star via Limewire three months earlier.

Released on a $10,000 bond under the condition that he have no computer access without monitoring software, Wilson will next appear in court October 27.
