Gerrit Keats of Clearwater, Fla., agreed to probation in a plea deal in federal court Monday. The sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 23, 2014.
The court filing includes a transcript from an email sent by Keats to Tygart, dated Oct. 24, 2012 — two weeks after USADA released details of Armstrong's doping violations — with the subject line, "Nazi tragic Tygart."
The email is six paragraphs filled with foul language and racist innuendo.
The maximum penalties for the offence were five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
