Sport institute trial on hold for 2nd day after illness

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP/WPRI) — The embezzlement trial of the founder of a Rhode Island-based international sport institute has been put on hold for a second day after he was hospitalized for an undisclosed reason.

A spokesman for the state court system says Dan Doyle, the founder of the Institute for International Sport, was not present for the criminal trial on Tuesday. He says the court can’t comment on Doyle’s health. Doyle’s lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment.

Doyle, of West Hartford, Connecticut, faces 18 counts, including embezzlement and forgery.

A court spokesman told Eyewitness News the trial was postponed for Tuesday, but was scheduled to continue Wednesday.

The trial began in September.
