Dennis DuVal, the former Syracuse police chief, and a former Syracuse basketball player, allegedly knew of the child molestation accusations against Bernie Fine in 2002.
Current police chief Frank Fowler told the Post Standard:
“The Syracuse Police Chief at that time, Dennis DuVal, was made aware of the allegations against Bernie Fine,” Fowler said in a long explanation of the city’s handling of the call.
DuVal was a basketball player at SU from 1972-1974, two years before Fine was hired.
DuVal would not answer the Post Standard’s questions on Monday.
