Butler Wants Bond Restrictions Lightened

An attorney for the Texas Tech professor accused of lying about missing Plague Bacteria is asking a judge to lighten up on his client's bond restrictions

Lubbock Attorney, Floyd Holder filed a motion Wednesday on behalf of Thomas Butler. In January, Butler reported that 30 vials of the Plague Bacteria were missing from a Texas Tech lab. He later admitted to accidentally destroying them. The motion asks that Butler be allowed to travel freely throughout the country and be allowed to use a computer.

Also, Holder told NewsChannel 11 Thursday, Butler wants to be able to attend his son's college graduation. Federal Prosecutors say they strenuously oppose the motion. No word on when a decision will be made.
