Russian Court Upholds Brittney Griner’s 9-Year Sentence

A Russian court rejected Brittney Griner’s appeal of her nine-year prison sentence for drug possession on Tuesday. The court ruled to uphold the sentence handed down to the WNBA superstar. However, in the ruling, the court stated that the time Griner will have to serve in prison will be recalculated with her time in pre-trial detention taken into account. One day in pre-trial detention will be counted as 1.5 days in prison, which means Griner will serve around eight years in prison unless the U.S. and Russia come to an agreement on a potential prisoner swap in the future.

Again, can’t imagine the amount of outrage if this had happened under Trump.

  1. Trump & Pompeo would have has Ms. Griner home long ago. Of course with Trump & Pompeo, Putin would never have invaded Ukraine & started a war. Now Putin is threatening a nuclear holocaust.
    What evil the Democrats have wrought on a once proud & strong US respected around the world. Looked on by many nations. All that has changed under Biden. These are difficult, but sorrowful times, for the US. May our nation recover under new leadership.
