DA: Police could have done more in Syracuse probe
DA: Police should have done more to encourage accuser of Syracuse coach Fine to come forward
By The Associated Press

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) ' A New York district attorney says Syracuse police should have done more to encourage a man to come forward after he accused a Syracuse University assistant basketball coach of sexual abuse almost a decade ago.

Bobby Davis told a detective in 2002 that Bernie Fine had molested him when Davis was a ballboy.

Fine, who has been fired, denies the allegations. Federal authorities are investigating.



Detective Doug Fox told Davis any crimes in the late 1980s had happened too long before to bring charges but said police could reopen the probe if Davis came forward with more recent allegations or accusers.

Onondaga (ahn-uhn-DAH'-guh) County District Attorney William Fitzpatrick says Davis didn't come forward in person.

He says police should have done more to make Davis "feel welcome."
