TTU Professor Indicted By Lubbock Federal Grand Jury

A Lubbock Federal Grand Jury indicted the Texas Tech professor accused of lying about the whereabouts of Bubonic Plague bacteria vials.

The jury handed down a 15-count indictment against Thomas Butler. He's also charged with smuggling plague bacteria into the U.S., and illegally taking the bacteria within the country and overseas. In January, Butler reported that 30 vials were missing from Tech's labs. As you may remember, the report triggered a terrorism alert plan and brought national attention to Texas Tech and Lubbock.

A trial date has not been set.
