SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The sentencing of a University of Iowa assistant professor guilty of assault causing bodily injury has been continued.

Toshiki Itoh, 47, was found guilty on two counts of assault causing bodily injury in October following incidents in which he hit, kicked, and punched his female lab assistant.

On Dec. 6, his lawyer filed a motion to delay sentencing, and a motion for a new trial, while the prosecution filed a motion to resist the delay and new trial.

Itoh's sentencing was originally scheduled for Dec. 10, but a new date has not been set.

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