BANGOR, Maine — A Millinocket man was convicted Thursday by a jury on one count of possession of sexually explicit materials, according to the Penobscot County district attorney’s office.

Dayle Rollins, 69, was convicted of the Class C crime after jurors heard 1½ days of testimony at the Penobscot Judicial Center.

He was indicted in January 2012 by the Penobscot County grand jury and pleaded not guilty.

Rollins faces up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

Christopher Almy said Thursday afternoon.
