"It's a decided victory," says
Dorothy Mahlin. A District of
Columbia Superior Court judge
last Thursday granted nine
Soviet Jewry activists, including
Detroiters Mahlin and William
Graham, a stay of execution on
charges that they were guilty of
violating D.C. laws by protest-
ing in front of the Soviet Em-
bassy last October.
The decision by Judge Joseph
M. Hannon differs from previous
cases. In all, 132 protestors have
been arrested since last May.
More than 50 have been con-
victed and sentenced to a $50
fine, $10 court costs and six-
months' probation, while five
Washington-area rabbis chose to
serve 12 days of a 15-day sen-
tence in jail rather than pay
their fines.
In the case of Mahlin,
Graham, and seven other ac-
tivists from throughout the U.S.
who were arrested in October,
Judge Hannon found them
guilty but granted a stay of
execution pending an appeal. He
also allowed each defendant to
attach written testimony to the
court record.
Mahlin and Graham decided
to join protests,at the Soviet
Embassy while attending meet-

ings of the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jewry. The UCSJ
engaged attorney Seth Waxman,
who is donating his services for
the appeal. Waxman, Mahlin
said, intends to appeal on Con-
stitutional grounds to the U.S.
Supreme Court any unfavorable
decision by the appellate judges.
An appellate ruling is not ex-
pected for four months to a year.
Waxman told Judge Hannon
that the Soviet Jewry activists
felt compelled to demonstrate
because the situation and perse-
cution of Jews is so severe in
the Soviet Union. He also
argued that the District of
Columbia is engaging in selec-
tive prosecution by charging
demonstrators at the Soviet
Embassy, but not prosecuting
anti-apartheid demonstrators at
the South African Embassy.
(Reportedly, the South Africans
do not press charges against the
demonstrators, while the Rus-
sians seek prosecution.)
During the trial, the pro-
secutor agreed that the defen-
dants "did not carry any signs
or placards and did not shout or
chant. They did not harass or
interfere with people passing by
or entering the embassy. Each
made a short statement of the
