AUBURN, Maine —

A man who accused former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine of molesting him has been sentenced to three years and three months in prison for sexually abusing a boy in Maine.

Zach Tomaselli of Lewiston was sentenced Wednesday in Auburn. He pleaded guilty in December in an agreement with prosecutors.

The 23-year-old Tomaselli apologized to the victim, who attended a camp where Tomaselli was a counselor. The boy was 13 and 14 when the abuse occurred.

Tomaselli is one of three men to accuse Fine of molesting them as boys, but his is the only case that falls within the statute of limitations. The U.S. Attorney's office is investigating his claim that Fine, who was fired, molested him in 2002 in Pittsburgh. Fine denied the accusations.
