UI professor asks for a delay in sentencing

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- A University of Iowa professor convicted of beating up a lab assistant is asking for his sentencing to be delayed.

Toshiki Itoh was convicted on two counts of assault causing bodily injury. Jurors were also split on a sexual abuse charge and prosecutors plan to retry him in February.

For now, Itoh's attorney has asked for a delay in sentencing. She plans to combine the two cases and ask for a new trial.
