Bernie Fine’s Wife Knew About the Possibility of Abuse, and Had a Sexual Relationship With the Accuser Also
On Outside The Lines this morning, ESPN ran audio of a tape recorded conversation between Bobby Davis, the former Syracuse ball boy accusing Bernie Fine of molestation, and Fine’s wife, Laurie Fine. There is some pretty unsavory information contained, including that Fine’s wife suspected Fine of abusing Davis and others, but was powerless to stop it, and that Laurie Fine and Bobby Davis had a sexual relationship as well, when he was 18.
“I know everything that went on, you know,” Laurie Fine said on the call, obtained by Outside the Lines from Davis. “I know everything that went on with him … Bernie has issues, maybe that he’s not aware of, but he has issues … And you trusted somebody you shouldn’t have trusted … “
When Davis asked her if there were others during the same call:
“No … I think there might have been others but it was geared to … there was something about you,” Laurie Fine said.
Laurie Fine also made reference to her husband needing male companionship that she could not provide.
When this broke, and Jim Boeheim went on his very strong defense of Fine, I said it was probably not prudent at the time. Now, it is looking even more like a mistake on Boeheim’s part to stand by his man. Laurie Fine sure doesn’t sound like she will be when questioned under oath.
