The man who accused Syracuse assistant Bernie Fine of molesting him as a child told CNYCentral news that "it was a game" and he made the whole thing up, according to the website this morning. Apparently, Zach Tomaselli said he chose to pick on Fine because he has hated Syracuse since the Orange beat Kansas — his favorite team — in the 2003 national championship.
He'll be reporting to prison in Maine next week to serve a 3-year sentence for sexually abusing a teenager at a summer camp. When asked if he accused Fine to try to garner some sympathy for his own case, Tomaselli said, "I can't talk about my case, but you can guess the answer."

The third accuser in the Bernie Fine case admits he lied about his entire story. He admits he never even met Bernie Fine. Zach Tomaselli's statements are believed to be part of the foundation fo the federal investigation into the former Syracuse basketball coach.
This guy is going to be in trouble in prison.
He wont be in general population if he is he's a dead man.
If you ask me, he should be given more jail time for making the false accusation. Whether Bernie is innocent completely we may never know, but if he is then this scum essentially ruined his whole life by making this claim.
Fine lost his job because of the ordeal. He recently took a job as a consultant with a team in the Israeli Basketball Super League.
That's so messed up..
