      The third man who accused Syracuse University assistant basketball coach Bernie Fine of molestation says he fully expects to go to prison himself for sexually abusing a boy in Maine.

      Zachary Tomaselli said on Facebook that he's looking to "find strength to get through this" as plea negotiations continue. He already admitted that most of the accusations are true, and said he takes responsibility for "the hell I put this teen through."

      Syracuse's school newspaper, The Daily Orange, quotes Tomaselli as saying he expects to spend two years behind bars.

      Tomaselli, who lives in Lewiston, Maine, said Tuesday that he's now under a gag order. His remarks to the newspaper and on Facebook were made before it went into effect.
