Former Texas Tech professor Thomas Butler is still guilty. That's the decision from a three judge panel.
Tuesday, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Butler's convictions. He is currently serving a two year prison sentence relating to a 2003 bioterrorism scare. He reported that thirty-vials of plague had been stolen from Texas Tech. Butler later admitted he may have accidentally destroyed them.
He is scheduled to be released to a halfway house at the end of November.
