George Lindemann Jr., who is now a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist, served 33 months in prison for killing his horse Charisma.
Both the junior Lindemann and his horse trainer Ms. Marion Hulick were convicted of lying to the insurance company and received sentences for the electrocution of the horse.
SunSentinel reported the jury mercy on Ms. Hulick, who cared for her disabled child and received only 21 months in prison.
Lindemann was also ordered to pay a $500,000 fine and $250,000 restitution to the insurance company. Initially, he denied having his horse killed for insurance money as he was vastly rich.

Lindemann has been released after serving his jail time. Currently, he is an investor. He co-founded Lake Point Holdings, a mining operation and everglades restoration project in Central Florida in 2007.
