(CBS/DFW) PLANO, Texas - A former contestant on the reality TV show "Top Chef: Just Desserts" has been indicted on a second-degree felony charge for child pornography.

Morgan Wilson, 38,  was arrested last December after undercover investigators allegedly received multiple file transfers from his computer containing sexually explicit material involving children, reports CBS station DFW.

According to DFW, the indictment says videos on Wilson's computer involved sex acts with children ranging in age from 10-years-old to as young as 2-years-old.

An officer's affidavit says Wilson was sharing child porn through the file sharing site Limewire, DFW reports.

Authorities reportedly say Wilson admitted to downloading and viewing the videos. He was released on a $10,000 bond under the stipulation that he would not access any computer without monitoring software.

Wilson is the executive pastry chef at Dallas' Ritz-Carlton hotel. He also starred on last year's season of "Top Chef: Just Desserts" on the Bravo television network.
