D. J. “Cat” Doucet

In a state where colorful political characters seem to be the rule rather than an anomaly, D.J. “Cat” Doucet is part of a matched set. Picture a man, nicknamed “Cat”, carrying a badge as sheriff, with a gun at his side, a black patch over one eye, proclaiming a sixth grade education, and speaking Cajun French. Doucet of St. Landry Parish served 32 years as a law officer.
