Butler To Appeal Verdicts

A former Texas Tech Researcher, convicted on charges related to his report of some missing plague vials, is appealing. Lawyers for Doctor Thomas Butler filed notice, on Wednesday, that they're appealing the verdicts.

Butler earlier this month was sentenced to two years in federal prison. He also was fined $15,000 and ordered to pay restitution of nearly $39,000. The case involves a January 2003 Bioterrorism scare linked to Butler's report of some missing vials.

Butler in December was convicted on 47 charges, including theft, embezzlement, fraud, and mail and wire fraud. Butler must report April 14th to begin serving his sentence.

Prosecutors have said Butler could serve his time at a Federal Prison in Big Spring.
