Britney Griner’s appeal against her 9-year sentence has been rejected.
According to reports, the ball player appeared in court via video conference to appeal her drug related sentence. Griner’s family and legal team has been working hard to get her back home.
The WNBA star and two-time Olympic gold medalist was arrested back in February as she was detained at a Moscow airport after Russian authorities claimed they found vape cartridges while searching her luggage. The cartridges allegedly contained oil derived from cannabis.
Griner will now have to serve the 9-years behind bars. Story still developing.
