In US v. Yono, No. 09-1548, the Sixth Circuit faced a challenge to a conviction for bank fraud and related crimes and sentenced to twenty-four months' imprisonment, claiming that  his right against self-incrimination was violated when the district court failed to ensure affirmatively that he knowingly and voluntarily chose to testify on his own behalf.

In affirming the conviction, the court held that the defendant has no right to have the district court develop a record to establish that his decision to testify was made knowingly and voluntarily.
