ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Onondaga County District Attorney's office will hold a news conference Wednesday to address the Bernie Fine investigation. It's scheduled for 10:30 a.m.
Syracuse University fired Fine more than a week ago after three people came forward accusing the former associate coach of child molestation. Federal authorities have searched Fine's home, his office on campus and three safe deposit boxes.
Monday, we learned just what those agents were looking for. Court documents show investigators were searching for pornography and any other items that could be used to "groom young males" for sex.
At Fine's home, officers took three large filing cabinets as evidence. Court documents show that evidence includes a number of CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes, photos, computers, cameras and cell phones. Similar items were taken from his office at the Carmelo Anthony Basketball Center on campus.
Fine has denied the molestation allegations.
We will carry the news conference live on YNN. It is expected to take place around 10:30 a.m.
