VIDEO: Former Syracuse Ball Boys Detail Child Molestation Allegations Against Bernie Fine

On Thursday evening, two former Syracuse ball boys brought forth allegations of child molestation against Bernie Fine, a long-time assistant to head coach Jim Boeheim. The two men, now 39 and 45, brought their story to ESPN, describing the allegations in graphic detail on the air. ESPN also confirmed the Syracuse police department is in the early stages of an investigation into the claims.

Here is the Outside the Lines report on the incident. Be forewarned, the video continues strong and graphic language.

This is one side of the story, and Syracuse denied the claim in statement shortly after the report aired. Head coach Jim Boeheim also released a statement, then spoke with ESPN shortly thereafter, calling the accuser a liar and saying the situation was a money grab. Fine was also placed on administrative leave pending the results of an investigation.
