A former MBTA K-9 police officer was sentenced to serve 18 months in jail for felony animal cruelty.

43-year-old Antonio Carneiro of Rochester was also given 20 years of probation during a hearing Tuesday at Wareham District Court.

In Febuarary, 2009 Carneiro was accused of starving his dog, Nitro, a six-year-old Belgian Malinois to death in an outdoor cage at his home. When examined, the dog weighed only 25 pounds and a necropsy indicated that it may have suffered for months.

Paul Magee, Rochester Police Chief, helped to investigate the case.
Magee said "How could a K-9 officer allow this to happen to his animal ?"

Carniero was fired by the MBTA in 2009.

He will serve his sentence at the Plymouth House of Corrections.
