I Kinda Feel Sorry For This Guy's Lawyer...

I mean, the lawyer is doing his job and his client just runs his mouth with the media undermining all his hard work... PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A Maine man who accused former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine of molesting him admitted Monday that he molested a boy while working as a camp counselor. Zach Tomaselli, of Lewiston, told The Associated Press that he sexually abused a 13-year-old boy he met at a camp in Maine. The boy is now 14. Tomaselli has pleaded not guilty to 11 charges but said he anticipates that he’ll plead guilty in Superior Court and that a plea bargain, which includes prison time, is on the table. "I don’t really see any other way at this point," he said. Tomaselli, 23, became the third man to level sexual abuse allegations against Fine when he told police in Syracuse that Fine first molested him in a Pittsburgh hotel room in 2002. He said Fine showed him porn, fondled him and watched him shower naked. Fine has denied any wrongdoing. He was subsequently fired by the school. "The only thing that transpired was the same stuff that happened to me," Tomaselli said of his relationship with the teenage boy in Maine. "This kid has been through a lot because of the way I controlled him and abused him." He said the plea bargain includes him serving three years in prison and registering as a sex offender for life. Tomaselli’s lawyer was in a Maine court last week seeking to have his confession to police suppressed. Defense lawyer Justin Leary said the confession was coerced, and the judge hadn’t ruled on the motion as of Monday. Leary declined comment Monday evening on his client’s confession to the AP.
