Bad translation leads to mistrial in NY rape case

TROY, N.Y. (AP) -- It's a court case momentarily lost in translation.
  
A New York judge this week declared a mistrial in a rape case after learning the accuser's testimony had been improperly translated.
  
The Troy Record reports Saturday that the accuser and defendant Than Soe both speak the same Burmese dialect.
  
Judge Debra Young made the ruling after a translator hired by Soe's lawyer questioned the prosecution translator's accuracy.
  
Defense attorney Lucas Mihuta said it was clear the prosecution translator did a "poor job" translating the accuser's testimony Wednesday and Thursday.
  
He said she may not have had a firm grasp of English.
  
The 27-year-old Soe is charged with first- and third-degree rape and first-degree sex abuse in the November 2013 assault.
  
Young rescheduled the case for a September trial.
