Spain Pianist Prosecuted
Pianist Laia Martin, front left, Luis Martin, second right, and Isabel Hernandez, right, both parents of Laia Martin, sit in a courtroom in Gerona, Spain, Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013. To most people, noise pollution is a jet engine roaring over their head. For one Spanish woman, it was a neighbor playing the piano more softly than a spoken conversation. The woman has taken her neighbors in the apartment below, 27-year-old pianist Laia Martin and her parents, to court. The prosecutors have asked for all three defendants to be sentenced to six years in jail for noise pollution and an additional one-and-a-half years for psychological damage. (AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)
