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.
