You're reading: Russian prosecutors ask for 3 years in punk case

on social media

Prosecutor Alexander Nikiforov
portrayed the request as lenient, saying it takes into account the fact
that two of the defendants are young mothers and that they have good
references.

The hooliganism charges the three women face can carry a sentence of up to 7 years in prison.

The
three women — Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 23; Maria Alekhina, 24; and
Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29 — have been in custody for five months
following the February stunt, in which they took over a church pulpit in
Christ the Savior cathedral for less than a minute, singing,
high-kicking and dancing.
