Former Texas Tech professor Dr. Thomas Butler reports to prison on Wednesday.
Last month, a federal judge sentenced Butler to two years in prison and a $15,000 fine. Under the rules of his sentence, Butler must report to the prison in Fort Worth by 2 p.m. on Wednseday.
In December, a jury found Butler guilty on 47 of 69 federal charges including theft, embezzlement, fraud and mail and wire fraud. Butler was arrested in January 2003 after he said a plague-causing bacteria was missing.
