SYRACUSE: A district attorney has accused police officials of criminally leaking a document in the sexual abuse investigation of Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine.
In a news conference Wednesday, prosecutor William Fitzpatrick accused Syracuse police Chief Frank Fowler and Deputy Chief Sean Broton of leaking a witness affidavit to embarrass the district attorney’s office. At issue is the handling in 2002 of Syracuse ball boy Bobby Davis’ initial claims that Fine had molested him.
Mayor Stephanie Miner defended the police officials Wednesday, saying police had conducted themselves “with complete professionalism and integrity.”
The Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper has published details from the affidavit. Miner said Fowler and Broton did not authorize the release of any documents to the central New York newspaper.
