WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A court document is offering a glimpse into the government's case against a former Kansas doctor accused of unlawfully possessing drugs and a firearm.

The attorney for Lawrence Simons asked a judge on Monday to delay until September a trial scheduled for later this month.

A defense filing cites the "overwhelming" contents of storage lockers where authorities found prescription drugs. Video and photos depict nine tables covered with drugs and medical paraphernalia. Prosecutors have also turned over multiple CDs.

Simons' attorney seeks more times to prepare a defense.

Simons is a convicted felon who allegedly gave a bondsman a gun as partial payment for bailing him out of jail in an unrelated criminal threat case. Simons had surrendered his license to write prescriptions, and could not lawfully possess controlled substances.
