Michigan Court of Appeals on right to full interpretation

People v. Chen, No. 301153 (Mich. App. Feb. 16, 2012) (unpublished)

The court affirmed that there is a right to a full interpretation of the trial proceedings.  An interpreter is required to provide a simultaneous translation.  The failure to provide it is plain error.  However, the court denied review because the defendant could not establish prejudice.
