Iqbal Memon requests trial delay

MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The father of the Discovery School shooter wants his trial delayed, citing extensive media coverage. Iqbal Memon is charged with hindering prosecution.

He's accused of trying to help his son, Hammad, get out of the country to avoid trial for the 2010 Discovery Middle School shooting.

Iqbal Memon's trial is set to begin Monday.

Memon also faces theft charges. Investigators said he stole more than $7,000 from the Alabama Medicaid Agency.

That trial is set for September.
