Man admits he lied about sex abuse
A prison inmate who accused a former Syracuse University assistant basketball coach of sexually molesting him more than 40 years ago admits he made up the claim. The accuser, Floyd VanHooser, says he lied to police and in December interviews with The Associated Press and The Post-Standard newspaper of Syracuse. He says he wanted to get back at the coach, Bernie Fine.
Fine had helped raise the 56-year-old VanHooser.
