The Executive Director for the Institute for International Sport Dan Doyle has been indicted on over a dozen charges. Doyle has been taken into custody by state police and is expected to be arraigned on 18 charges in Superior Court today.

The charges include seven counts of embezzlement, five charges of forgery, one charge of obtaining money under false pretenses and five counts of filing a false document.

The indictment was unsealed in Superior Court on Friday before Justice Robert Krause. Krause set bail at $100,000 with surety. Doyle was ordered to surrender his passport and his travel is restricted to Rhode Island and Connecticut. He is not permitted to travel to Florida where he just accepted a new job as a consultant.

In February 2012 RI State Police became to investigate Doyle's non-profit after a state audit revealed that the institute could not account for over $400,000 of a $575,000 legislative grant given to the institute in 2007.

The organization was able to provide the auditor with $163,000 in receipts from the money. The grant money was meant to help pay for the construction of a new building, the International Leadership Building near the institutes headquarters on the University of Rhode Island Campus. The new building remains a shell.

In addition to state aid many philanthropists dumped millions into the project including Allan Shawn Feinstein and the Hassenfeld's Foundation.

During the investigation State Police discovered that some documents which were signed by the institute's board members were actually forged including the Allan Hassenfeld's signature on the institute's 2009 annual report. Michael Healy also said he never signed a document that sent $157,500 in taxpayer dollars to the institute.

During the investigation it was also revealed that Doyle used money from the non-profit organization to buy two homes and four lots on Bald Head Island in North Carolina.
