    institute ran the nonprofit as a personal piggybank, using it to pay for private
    school tuition, plastic surgery and other expenses, a prosecutor said Wednesday
    during the start of Dan Doyles embezzlement trial.Doyle, once a college
    basketball coach and boxing promoter for Sugar Ray Leonard, founded the
    Institute for International Sport in 1986 to bring young people together and
    advance peace through sports and the arts. Now, he is accused of 18 counts,
    including embezzlement and forgery.Doyle, 67, of West Hartford, Connecticut, has
    maintained his innocence. His lawyer, Michael Blanchard, said all the money was
    accounted for and the evidence would show many of the disputed expenses were
    authorized.If Mr. Doyle is an embezzler, hes probably the worst embezzler in the
    history of the world, he told jurors.Blanchard dropped the names of some of the
    high-profile people who had spoken at institute events over the years: former
    President Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Nobel Prize
    winners Desmond Tutu and Elie Wiesel.Assistant Attorney General Mark Trovato
    said the case was not an indictment of the institutes programs, which brought
    together children from around the world. He said some of the approximately 50
    witnesses he planned to call would even describe Doyle as a visionary.But he
    said the institute, which was located on the campus of the University of Rhode
    Island, was run with no oversight. That, he said, allowed Doyle to use the
    nonprofits money to pay himself two salaries and unauthorized bonuses. He said
    Doyle also used the money to satisfy a pledge to his alma mater, Bates College,
    pay his childs tuition at Oberlin College and get reimbursement for his American
    Express card for expenses, like groceries and his daughters wedding rehearsal
    dinner.Trovato said the institute planned to build a second building on the URI
    campus and received a quote of $466,500. Doyle then secured $1.2 million in
    grants from the Rhode Island legislature and from two philanthropists, Alan
    Shawn Feinstein and Alan Hassenfeld, former CEO of Hasbro Inc., all for the same
    building, he said.Years later, the building was never completed and Doyle could
    account for just $166,000 of the money, Trovato said.In addition, Doyle is
    accused of forgery and filing false documents for annual reports that carried
    signatures purportedly of Hassenfeld and Russell Hogg, former CEO of Mastercard.
    Trovato said a secretary signed them at Doyles direction.Doyles lawyer said
    Doyle made $1 million as a boxing promoter, most notably for the Leonard and
    Marvin Hagler bout in 1987. He said Doyle and his family invested hundreds of
    thousands of their own money to keep the institute afloat. At times, he could
    not take a salary and had over $200,000 in credit on his cards to pay for
    institute events, Blanchard said.For oversight, Doyle relied on Hogg, a longtime
    board member from the first meeting in Trump Tower in New York in 1987,
    Blanchard said. Hogg authorized expenses including reimbursement for tuition, he
    said.The real issue for you is intent, Blanchard told jurors. The evidence will
    show there is no criminal intent.

    .ca! Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in
    Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara
    put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. Melbourne Victory
    fans who dobbed in and turfed out a flare-lighting troublemaker in Saturdays
    A-League derby have saved their club from punishment from Football Federation
    Australia over the matter.A flare lit in the second half of Victorys 4-1 derby
    defeat looked set to compound their misery on a poor night, with the club
    playing under the threat of a points deduction due to poor fan behaviour.But
    A-League chiefs have decided against activating the punishment or lengthening
    their probation period after hearing evidence from the club.Rather than
    celebrating or cheering the flare - as might have been the case in years past -
    Victorys active fans shunned the individual and handed him over to authorities,
    according to FFA.A-League boss Greg ORourke suggested it might be the start of a
    cultural shift.The self-policing by the Melbourne Victory fans is yet another
    positive step and a strong public statement that fans, clubs and the wider
    football family were united in saying flares are not acceptable, ORourke
    said.The club has instead been issued with a reprimand.Western Sydney Wanderers,
    walking a similar tightroope after poor fan behaviour from last season, had
    their probation period lengthened until seasons end after two flares were lit in
    the Sydney derby.ddddddddddddORourke said the crucial factor in treating
    Victorys situation differently was the action of fans - as well as Victorys
    enthusiastic take-up of anti-flare campaigns.This behaviour is refreshing, he
    said.We look at all incidents on a case-by-case basis and take into
    consideration the totality of the situation and behaviours and we noted some
    clear distinctions from the incidents last week at the Sydney derby.In issuing
    the reprimand FFA is warning all clubs of the need to stay vigilant. The
    collective focus of FFA, clubs, players and true football fans is to work
    together to eliminate all forms of anti-social behaviour, including flares.We
    need to be clear that a recurrence of the incident where flares are ignited in
    the Melbourne Victory fans area may leave FFA with no alternative other than to
    deduct points from the club. ' ' '
