Update: Brittney Griner sentenced to 9 years in Russian prison on drug charges

quote:

Russian prosecutors asked a court outside Moscow to sentence American basketball star Brittney Griner to 9 1/2 years in prison as closing arguments in her cannabis possession trial were made Thursday.

The trial is nearing its end nearly six months after Griner’s arrest at a Moscow airport and subsequent detention, a case that has reached the highest levels of U.S.-Russia diplomacy. She faces up to 10 years in prison, if convicted

Although a conviction appears almost certain, given that Russian courts rarely acquit defendants and Griner has acknowledged having vape cartridges with cannabis oil in her luggage, judges have considerable latitude on sentencing.

An excessive sentence for marijuana comparison probably isn’t the best example of American freedom given our drug policies here.

People are saying if WNBA players were paid the same as NBA players then she would never have had to play in Russia to make ends meet so this is totally America's fault

Wonder if she's still wanting to bend the knee against the racist country of America.

Bitch is getting everything that she deserves to get.

Imagine being arrested for pot and in American prison then watching the President work hard to get her released in exchange for giving up the “Lord of War”.

Clown World.

If she wouldn't have had weed in her stuff she wouldn't be in jail. This has nothing to do with how much she is paid. Don't break laws and you won't go to jail.

different climate now but this is an old schtick from Cold War days, impose a seemingly harsh sentence for shock and awe and then immediately announce the sentence is being suspended for humanitarian(prisoner swap) reasons

ETA:: personally hope she serves every second of whatever sentence she gets

I find it funny how America is soooo very racist. Asia and Europe absolutely hate black people. Her eyes are open now.

That's part of traveling to different countries - you're subject to their laws - American law means nothing in Russia.

We all know this is coming from Biden and those in charge. I hope it just pisses off the relatives of anyone in the USA serving time, or on ridiculously expensive probation for weed.

I wonder if she’s still considering staying there like Lebron said
