AUBURN, Maine — A Maine man who became the third person to level sexual abuse allegations against former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine is seeking to suppress what he says is a coerced confession in his own molestation case.
Zach Tomaselli of Lewiston is charged with sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy. Tomaselli tells The Associated Press that his past abuse made it difficult for him to set boundaries and understand a proper relationship between a man and boy. But he denies the charges.
Tomaselli wants a judge to prevent a videotaped interview with investigators from being used as evidence. Closing arguments on his motion were held Thursday in Auburn.
Tomaselli says Fine abused him in a Pittsburgh hotel room in 2002. Fine denies the allegations made by Tomaselli and two others.
