LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A Maine man who now says he lied when he accused former Syracuse assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine of molesting him has reported to prison in a child sex abuse case.
Zachary Tomaselli of Lewiston pleaded guilty to molesting a boy when the victim was 13 and 14 years old. He was sentenced to three years and three months and reported to prison Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Tomaselli thrust himself into the news in November when he made accusations against Fine after two former ballboys accused Fine of molesting them.
Last week, Tomaselli announced that he was a liar who'd never even met Fine. Days later, he said he'd had a "complete psychiatric breakdown" when he recanted.
Fine, who was fired, has not been charged and has denied the abuse claims.
