Possible jail term for Russian female punk band

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 8 August 2012

Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot sang what they called an impromptu protest prayer against President Vladimir Putin in February. Their fans thought it was great, but Russian prosecutors did not, and now three of the band members have gone on trial accused of hooliganism. They face up to three years in jail if convicted.
