PEOPLE v. AUGUSTIN, G030166

A victim's speech disability did not render her incapable of communicating her testimony to necessitate her disqualification as a witness, and the trial court did not err by allowing parties to ask the victim leading questions, or by failing to appoint an interpreter to communicate the victim's answers.
