DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A former Iowa State University researcher charged with falsifying data to make a developmental AIDS vaccine appear promising is seeking the third trial delay is as many months.

The attorney for Dong-Pyou Han says in court documents filed Thursday he’s reviewing tens of thousands of pages of documents that must be translated into Korean.

Public Defender Joseph Herrold adds his client needs time to consider a plea agreement prosecutors have offered that could avert a trial.

He is asking a judge to set a trial date for February that gives him more time to consider and negotiate a potential plea deal.

Han, who is free on bond, has pleaded not guilty in federal court to four counts of making false statements in research reports.
