Syracuse police say they are investigating an allegation that Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine molested a team ball boy for more than a dozen years beginning in the mid-1980s.
One of two alleged victims, Bobby Davis, 39, came forward with allegations in 2003, but he was told by authorities that the statute of limitations had run out. At that time, former Syracuse basketball player Dennis Duval was police chief.
Syracuse University vice president for public affairs Kevin Quinn issued a statement Thursday in response to the sexual abuse allegations against assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine. The statement says that the university investigated the allegations in 2005 and that Fine “vehemently denied” the allegations.
