In January 2011, after heading to a police station to defend a client accused of car theft, Nikolishen was himself arrested and charged with his client's alleged crime. He spent most of the next two years in jail awaiting trial. In December 2012, he was released on bail for treatment of cancer he had developed in custody. Nikolishen claims his arrest was in retaliation for successfully defending clients in a country where prosecutors are used to getting their way. (AP Photo/Sergei Chuzavkov, File)
