Two passionate Lance Armstrong fans recently plead guilty to threatening one of the top people investigating whether the iconic athlete doped. One was Utah resident Robert Hutchins, who will be sentenced in February in Denver. He faces up to five years in jail&nbsp;and a maximum $250,000 fine. In a separate case, Florida resident and doctor Gerrit Kuechle Keats plead guilty to similar threatening charges earlier this fall.
