Former Syracuse Assistant Basketball Coach Bernie Fine Cleared of Charges

It took nearly a year to clear his name, but former Syracuse Assistant Basketball Coach, Bernie Fine  was cleared of all sex abuse charges.  While charges were dropped, Fine’s reputation has been muddied, he lost his job and endured a year unlike any of us have ever seen.

federal authorities dropped the investigation completely after claiming to interviewing 130 witnesses and sorting through 100,000 pages of documents and finding no evidence to support the claims.

 

Some say Fine was a victim of the media’s rush to judgement in the wake of Penn State’s Sandusky case.  The whole uproar nearly cost Syracuse coach, Jim Boeheim his job when he stood up for Fine.  Both Fine and Boeheim have refused media requests for comment.  While some may say, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” others will remind us “innocent until proven guilty.”
