SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - The jury in the embezzlement trial of the founder of a Rhode Island-based international sport institute has ended a week of deliberations with no verdict.

Institute for International Sport founder Dan Doyle has pleaded not guilty to 18 counts, including embezzlement and forgery.

Attorney general spokeswoman Amy Kempe says the jury went home for the day Friday afternoon and will pick up deliberations again on Monday.

Doyle, of West Hartford, Connecticut, is a former college basketball coach and boxing promoter for Sugar Ray Leonard.

Prosecutors say he pillaged the institute and couldn’t account for hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations and state grants.

His lawyer argued that he didn’t do anything criminal and suggested the institute’s board was to blame.

The trial has lasted two months.
