Utah man sentenced to probation for Tygart threats
DENVER — Another person has been sentenced for sending a threatening email to U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart over the agency’s sanctions against Lance Armstrong.
Robert Hutchins, of Sandy, Utah, was sentenced Monday in federal court in Denver to serve one year of probation with mental health treatment and perform 50 hours of community service.
Chief U.S. District Judge Marcia Krieger also ordered the 60-year-old to pay $3,300 to cover the cost of his probation supervision. He pleaded guilty in November to one count of sending interstate communications involving a threat.
Last month, a retired physician from Clearwater, Fla., Gerrit Keats, was sentenced to probation and 540 hours of community service for sending a threatening email to Tygart that was more graphic.
