Via WP: Moscow appeals court frees 1 member of Pussy Riot...

...upholds 2 year sentence for other 2 members. Yekaterina Samutsevich, on left in the above picture, was freed by the Moscow City Court.

Via the Washington Post

The Moscow City Court ruled that Yekaterina Samutsevich’s sentence should be suspended because she was thrown out of the cathedral by guards before she could remove her guitar from its case and take part in the performance.

“The punishment for an incomplete crime is much lighter than for a completed one,” said Samutsevich’s lawyer, Irina Khrunova. “She did not participate in the actions the court found constituted hooliganism.”
