So she DID break the law and was held in a well founded charge. That's a heck of a thing to do in another country.

"The detained American basketball star Brittney Griner pleaded guilty to drug charges in a court near Moscow on Thursday, her lawyer said.

“I’d like to plead guilty, your honor. But there was no intent. I didn’t want to break the law,” Ms. Griner said in English, which was then translated into Russian, Reuters reported.

Ms. Griner has been detained in Russia since Feb. 17, accused by the Russian authorities of having a vape cartridge with hashish oil in her luggage at an airport near Moscow.

Aleksandr Boikov, her lawyer, said cartridges appeared in Ms. Griner’s luggage “because of carelessness.”

“She pleaded guilty, stressing that she was carrying substances prohibited in Russia unintentionally, because she was packing in a hurry,” Mr. Boikov said.

If Ms. Griner is convicted, she could face up to 10 years in a Russian penal colony. Ms. Griner still faces formal conviction and sentencing proceedings, and her next day in court is scheduled to be July 14."

    "...it (is) incongruous that Griner was one of those WNBA basketball players who knelt during the singing of the U.S. National Anthem to protest the U.S. government's acts of police brutality against black people and is now asking for help from that same government, now led by Joe Biden."

    Typical woke progressive hypocrite.

    They should put her in jail for the full 20 since she plead guilty. Some gulag between Lena and Magadan. See how racism really works.

    And of course, she needs to pay her Russian Lawyers, so if she stays for an extended time (because the Russians will say 20 and that's just a ballpark figure. Then they have to figure out where she is and find her.That may take oh, a year and a half... Then of course the government will make her pay for room and food and blankets, and the rotten fish she's been eating, and clothes she had to buy.... it goes on and on.
