Last fall, Plano, TX., native Morgan Wilson was runner-up on Bravo's Top Chef spinoff, Top Chef: Just Desserts. This fall, things are not nearly as sweet for the 38-year-old pastry chef. On October 6, Wilson was indicted on three felony charges of possession of child pornography with intent to promote. The former Ritz Carlton executive pastry chef was arrested last December, less than a month after the show's finale, after undercover investigators received files allegedly containing child porn via Limewire, and tracked them back to Wilson using his IP address. The images in those files, authorities said, showed children and toddlers engaged in sexual acts. A search of Wilson's home also allegedly turned up pornographic material involving children.

After his arrest, Wilson was released on $10,000 bond and is now due in court on October 27. During his release, Wilson was prohibited from using a computer without monitoring software.
