We heard gymnastics coach Don Peters has been accused of sexual Abuse then it was Penn State Jerry Sandusky and now is Bernie Fine from Syracuse who is been accused by two former ball boys at Syracuse. Fine is married, with children, his wife is Laurie Fine and is about her the story you are to read.
Dottie Sandusky Jerry Sandusky’s wife has been under the microscope ever since the news on the alleged sexual abuse at Penn State at the hands of her husband to 8 boys was revealed, many people wonder did she knew something, was she suspicious? Why did she remained quiet? probably the same questions will be a burden on the life of Laurie Fine.
Her husband is 66 year-old Bernie Fine Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team long time coach, who has been recently accused of sexual abuse, before we get to the ugly stuff let me tell you that Bernie and Rick Pitino became Coach Jim Boeheim’s assistant coaches in 1976, before that he worked at Lincoln Junior High and Henninger High.
Bernie’s sexual abuse accusers are Bobby Davis now 38 and his stepbrother Mike Lang (45) both once were Syracuse’s ball boys fo many years. Davis alleged abuse occurred while he was in the seventh grade sometime around 1984 after they met while he was selling candy since he lives four blocks from the fines. He said he was molested at Bernie and Laurie’s home as well as during road trips and even at basketball facilities at Syracuse he added that head coach Boeheim even saw him once at Fine’s hotel room, but he never told him about the abuse. Lang said he was molested by fine while he was in fifth grade.
“Boeheim saw me with Bernie all the time in the hotel rooms, on road trips,” Davis said. “He’d come in, and see me laying in the bed, kind of glance at me like, ‘What are you doing here?’ But he wouldn’t say that. He’d just scowl. And I would look at him like, I’d be nervous. I felt embarrassed ’cause I felt stupid that I’m there. I’m not supposed to be here. I know it, and Boeheim’s not stupid.”
For his part Boeheim, said these men are lying..
“I know this kid, but I never saw him in any rooms or anything,” Boeheim told ESPN. “It is a bunch of a thousand lies that he has told. You don’t think it is a little funny that his cousin (relative) is coming forward? He supplied four names to the university that would corroborate his story. None of them did … there is only one side to this story. He is lying.”
Syracuse put Coach Fine is on administrative leave, want to know about Fine’s wife Laurie who Bobby Davis said he became friends with?
“I would go on recruiting trips with him, stay in hotels with him,” Davis told ESPN in 2003. “I stayed in many hotels with him. At the (1987) Final Four. I would get there a day earlier than Laurie (Fine’s wife) and the kids sometimes and we’d spend the night all alone in a hotel room many times.”
Sadly there so few information about 53 year-old Laurie Fine, we know that she and her husband have three children a son David and two gorgeous daughters Sara and Sheila. People who know Laurie and her family had just the nicest things to say about them, Mrs. Fine was the woman at the phone in her house when media called on Thursday night but she refused to comment. We heard Laurie Fine is devastated by these allegations. Like her husband she is involved with the The Boys & Girls Clubs of Syracuse
