Russian judge Galina Yefremova, left, chairs a court session in a town of Berezniki, some 1500 km (940 miles) north-east of Moscow, Russia, on Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2013. A Russian court on Wednesday turned down the attempt of jailed feminist punk band Pussy Riot member Maria Alekhina to defer serving her sentence until her preschool son becomes a teenager. Alekhina  was convicted last year along with two other band members of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred for an anti-President Vladimir Putin stunt in Russia’s main cathedral.
