Actual Caption: Members of a female punk band 'Pussy Riot' Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (L), Maria Alyokhina (C) and Yekaterina Samutsevich (R), sit inside a glass enclosure during a court hearing in Moscow on August 8, 2012. Members of the all-girl band Pussy Riot who were charged with hooliganism for staging a 'punk prayer' against Vladimir Putin were due Wednesday to deliver final statements on the last day of their trial. The controversial hearings raced toward a verdict with prosecutors seeking a three-year sentence and global calls mounting among stage stars and top Western officials to win the young women's release.
