SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - Closing arguments are set in the two-month-long embezzlement trial of the founder of a Rhode Island-based international sport institute.

Amy Kempe, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Peter Kilmartin, says closing arguments are set for Monday in Washington County Superior Court in the trial of Dan Doyle, the founder of the Institute for International Sport. The defense rested its case Wednesday.

Doyle, of West Hartford, Connecticut, faces 18 counts, including embezzlement and forgery. Prosecutors have said Doyle couldn’t account for hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Rhode Island state government and two philanthropists.

Doyle has disputed that and at one point threatened a sit-in and hunger strike in the courtroom over complaints that he is not receiving a fair trial.

He was also briefly hospitalized for an undisclosed medical condition.
