A lawyer for a Russian man sentenced to 13 years in prison for attacking worshippers in a Moscow synagogue filed an appeal with Russia’s Supreme Court. The lawyer for Alexander Koptsev asked Tuesday to have his client’s sentence reduced, arguing he was mentally unstable. Koptsev was convicted last month of attempted murder for stabbing nine men at the Bolshaya Bronnaya Synagogue with a hunting knife Jan. 11.
