Butler To Resign From TTUHSC By End Of Month

Dr. Thomas Butler, the man blamed for causing a nationwide bio terrorism scare, has reached a settlement agreement with Texas Tech Health Sciences Center. It's been more than a year since Dr. Butler has worked at the TTUHSC, but he's been on the pay roll pending the completion of his trial.

"Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and Dr. Thomas Butler have reached an agreement on settlement terms. The details and language of the agreement are currently being worked out. We consider this in the best interest of all parties involved that this matter be resolved without further internal proceedings. With this settlement, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center considers all internal matters with Dr. Butler resolved and will pursue no further actions. We wish Dr. Butler well. We expect if everything moves forward as agreed upon, Dr. Butler will resign by the end of the month," Statement from President M. Roy Wilson, M.D.

In December, Butler was found guilty on 47 charges including theft, embezzlement, mail fraud, wire fraud, and the unauthorized export of plague to Tanzania. Pre-sentencing reports are due on February fifth, and the sentencing phase is expected to start March 5th, 2004.
