PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Authorities say a former boxing promoter, ex-college basketball coach and founder of a Rhode Island-based sport institute who was convicted of embezzlement will be sentenced this summer.

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin’s office says Dan Doyle will be sentenced on July 7.

Doyle, of the Institute for International Sport, was convicted in December of 18 counts, including embezzlement, forgery, filing false documents and obtaining money under false pretenses.

Prosecutors say the 67-year-old Doyle, of West Hartford, Connecticut, used the institute as a piggybank, taking more than $1 million to pay for things including college tuition and wedding expenses for his children and for plastic surgery.

Doyle had sought a new trial. A judge denied that motion last month.
