A Spanish doctor accused of masterminding one of the world's largest doping rings has been convicted of endangering public health. Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes gave blood transfusions to Lance Armstrong's teammates and competitors. And he says he treated soccer and tennis players too — though he won't name names. Fuentes got a one year suspended prison sentence on Tuesday. A former cycling coach was sentenced to four months, and three other co-defendants were acquitted.
