Warrant release OK by ex-Syracuse coach's lawyers

Attorneys for a former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach accused of molestation say they don't object to the release of the search warrant application that led authorities to take computers, cameras and other material from his home.

Bernie Fine was fired Nov. 27 after three men said he sexually abused them when they were boys. He has denied wrongdoing.

Records already unsealed by a judge show investigators looking for pornography that could be used "to sexually arouse or groom young males" and records detailing Fine's contact with boys.

The application cites information or evidence used to establish a basis for the federal warrants.

Fine's lawyers wrote to the judge on Tuesday saying they wouldn't oppose the unsealing of the application.

Federal prosecutors didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.
