West Hartford Man Sentenced in Embezzlement Case

A former boxing promoter, ex-college basketball coach and founder of a Rhode Island-based sport institute who was convicted of embezzlement has been sentenced to a total of 15 years with seven years to serve and the remainder suspended with probation.

Dan Doyle, of West Hartford, was convicted in December of embezzlement, obtaining money under false pretenses, forgery and filing a false document.

Prosecutors said Doyle spent the money on everything from camps he ran, including in West Hartford, to splurging on himself.

Doyle maintains his innocence and his defense team said they’re looking into new evidence as they fight for a retrial.
