WNBA Brittney Griner Trial in Russia

On Monday, Brittney Griner made a brief public appearance and took a step closer to 

going on trial in Russia for drug-related charges. In a brief court hearing, the judge ruled that 

Griner would remain in custody during her trial. According to Griner's attorney, 

Alexander Boikov, the next hearing is scheduled for Friday, July 1. Griner, 31, has 

now spent 130 days in Russian detention. Her appeal for home detention was turned down.

Griner was detained on February 17 when officials at an airport in the Moscow region allegedly discovered 

cannabis vape cartridges in her luggage. If found guilty, she may spend up to 10 years in prison.
