An Opelousas man has been convicted of cruelty in the case of Dr. Drip.

The retired race horse was 13 when he had to be euthanized due to his condition. 

On Tuesday, Jermaine Doucet, 19,  was convicted of aggravated cruelty to animals following a trial. The judge sentenced him to one year in prison, suspended, and one year of active supervised probation. He faced up to 10 years in prison for a conviction on that charge. 

Dr. Drip was found in an Opelousas field so weak he couldn't stand, emaciated and covered with sores. He was euthanized after veterinarians determined his condition warranted that action.
