WNBA Star Brittney Griner Pleads Guilty in Moscow Court
WNBA Star Brittney Griner pleaded guilty to drug charges in a Russian court near Moscow yesterday. Griner who the U.S. State Department has classified as wrongfully detained, faces up to 10 years in prison under the charge. Griner’s lawyers expect the court to take into account the 31 year old athlete’s guilty plea and hope for leniency. Blood samples taken from Griner the day of the arrest did not show any traces of drugs and according to her lawyers she was clean. Her lawyers expect the trial to end around the beginning of August with her next hearing scheduled for July 14th.
