A 52-page report released by a special committee of Syracuse University’s Board of Trustees concludes that law enforcement should have been alerted about an accusation against an assistant men’s basketball coach in 2005, when the university first received the molestation complaint from a former ball boy. The Post-Standard reports that the university, in failing to investigate fully the sexual-abuse complaint against Bernie Fine, the associate head coach, fell short of protecting potential victims as well as the university. The lawyers who compiled the report for the trustees added that the matter should have been handled as a criminal, rather than a personnel, matter. Syracuse fired Mr. Fine in November 2011. The district attorney of Onondaga County, N.Y., has said that he cannot charge Mr. Fine, as the statute of limitations has ended. However, the U.S. attorney’s office is overseeing a separate investigation.
