Man seeks retrial in $1M sports nonprofit embezzlement case

A Connecticut man convicted of misusing more than $1 million from the nonprofit he founded is asking the Rhode Island Supreme Court for a new trial. Daniel Doyle Jr., the founder of the Institute for International Sport, was sentenced to prison in 2017 for forging signatures and stealing money from his nonprofit. Doyle's attorneys contend prosecutors poisoned the jury with an "avalanche" of evidence against the West Hartford, Connecticut, man about conduct for which he was never charged. The state has asked the court to deny and dismiss the appeal. Arguments are scheduled to be heard Jan. 22.
