Wife of Bernie Fine Gives Advice to Pedophiles: “Get your rocks off with gay boys”

If Laurie Fine made these statements, she is an ignorant, stupid woman who aided in child sexual abuse. If the statute of limitations has not run out, she should be arrested for child endangerment and child sexual abuse.

“Two alleged victims of Bernie Fine today praised Syracuse University for firing the former basketball coach accused of sex abuse.

Fine was fired last night just hours after damning new evidence suggested his wife watched him molest a boy staying at their house.

Laurie Fine allegedly told one of her husband’s three accusers in a recorded phone call that she suspected he had done the same to other boys – but that she never did anything to stop it.

She is also said to have revealed that she slept with one of the victims, once he turned 18 – as it emerged that the tapes had been in the hands of police and ESPN for nearly ten years and no action was taken.

One of the alleged victims Mr Davis, now 39, says he secretly taped the conversation in 2002 in an effort to collect proof that the longtime college basketball coach had abused him, starting when he was 12 years old.

‘I know everything that went on, you know,’ she says on tapes played by ESPN’s Outside the Line program.

‘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.’

Mrs Fine talks about the alleged abuse against Mr Davis in a matter-of-fact tone and suggests she has known about it for many years.

‘But you never had any [sex act] with him?’ she asks Mr Davis, who is an adult at the time of the phone call.

‘No,’ Mr Davis says. ‘I think he wanted to, but…’

Mrs Fine: ‘Oh, of course he would! Why wouldn’t he?’

Mr Davis lived with the Fines in the basement of their house on and off throughout his childhood. He says Mr Fine began abusing him in 1984 when he was just 12 years old and in seventh grade.

He says Mrs Fine always knew something was going on and even caught her husband touching him when she peered through the blinds one night as she pretended to take out the trash.

It wasn’t until that incident, when Mr Davis was in high school but still a minor, that Mrs Fine approached him and told him to stand up for himself. However, she never called police.

In the conversation, Mrs Fine seems to accept that her husband has predilections for boys and that there is nothing she can do about it.

‘You know what, “Go to a place where there’s gay boys. Find yourself a gay boy,”‘ Mrs Fine says.

‘”Get your rocks off, and have it be over with.” He needs that male companionship that I can’t give him.’

She explains that her husband is no longer interested in her sexually, instead preferring boys. And she isn’t interested in him, either, she says.

Which could explain why she ALSO became sexually involved with Mr Davis. In the tape she confirms she had sex with the former Syracuse University ball boy when he was 18 and a high school senior.

But Mrs Fine claims she couldn’t help Mr Davis when he was younger.

‘Because I care about you, and I didn’t want to see you being treated that way,’ she says.

‘And, it’s hard. If it was another girl… it would be easy to step in because you know what you’re up against. If it’s another guy, you can’t compete with that. It’s just wrong, and you were a kid. You’re a man now, but you were a kid then.’

If the allegations Mr Davis are making prove true, Mrs Fine did nothing to stop the abuse while it occurred.

But she wasn’t the only one who didn’t step in to help Mr Davis. He reported the incident to Syracuse police in 2002 and turned over the tapes when the detective said he needed proof.

But police apparently never investigated any farther.

In 2003, Mr Davis turned the tapes over to ESPN, but the sports network never did anything then because reporters couldn’t find ‘anyone else to corroborate the story.’

Mr Davis and his step-brother Mr Lang have both accused Mr Fine of abusing them when they were ball boys for the Syracuse University men’s basketball team.”

    If I knew someone – anyone – was sexually inappropriate with a child in any way (let alone if I actually WITNESSED the abuse!) my a$$ would be on the phone to the police, Child Protective Services, the Governor, WHOEVER, so fast the perpetrators head would spin and NOTHING would keep me from putting a stop to it. The same would go for animal abuse, elder abuse and any other type of victimization or exploitation. Am I actually alone in thinking this way?? I simply don’t understand the pervasive lack of follow through/refusal to act regarding these child molesters – somebody please explain this so it makes sense!

      And would someone really fear losing their JOB over reporting something like this to the authorities?? How would an employer even KNOW who reported it? W.T.F.?

        When someone knows they are up against a powerful authority figure in a University, they know it may be their word against the abuser’s, and might lose. I don’t justify this fear, I am just stating what happens in these cases.

        The janitor was a temp, so he was particularly afraid of losing his job. He had no long-term record there. Sandusky was one of McQueary’s football buddies, and an older authority figure. Sandusky had many years and many friends at the University. Again I don’t justify their fears. I am merely saying that this is where their mind probably stopped them from taking action.

    evidence in their hands for 10 years and nothing was done these cops are as bad as the pedofiles
