SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The attorney for a convicted assistant professor on paid leave from the University of Iowa has filed a motion to delay sentencing and a motion for a new trial.

Toshiki Itoh, 44, was found guilty Oct. 26 on two counts of assault with intent to cause bodily injury, stemming from incidents in which he injured his then-research assistant.

A jury was unable to find him guilty of a sexual-abuse charge, resulting in a hung jury.

He faces a retrial for the sexual-abuse charge Feb. 7.

On Tuesday, the prosecution filed a motion to resist the delay of sentencing and a new trial.

Itoh is scheduled to be sentenced for two counts of assault with intent to cause bodily injury Friday.

Since Itoh was charged in September 2008, he has been on paid leave from the UI with an annual salary of $93,000.
