LITTLE ROCK, Ark.  --Prosecutors filed court papers that argue the convictions of three men accused of illegally bringing Chinese women to the United States should stand.

A federal judge asked both sides in the case to submit briefs before he rules on an issue that could lead to a third trial in the case. The men's first trial ended in a mistrial. An appeals court ordered a hearing after it said it needed more information in the case of David Jewell Jones, Tony Ma and Bob Rushing.

The three were convicted of various offenses regarding visas for the women. They appealed their convictions to the Eighth U-S Circuit Court of Appeals.

If the Eighth Circuit overturns the convictions, there could be a third trial.
