Brittney Griner is appealing her drug conviction

Brittney Griner is appealing her drug conviction ...

Brittney Griner, a former WNBA star, was found guilty and sentenced on drug charges in Russia on the 4th of August. Griner has been sentenced to nine years in jail in Russia.

Griner does appear to be planning to contest the conviction. According to rumors, Griner has filed an appeal formal against the decision made in her drug case.

While she was at the Moscow airport, Griner admitted to possessing hashish oil in her luggage. However, she claimed that she had packed it inadvertently and that she did not intend to violate the law.

There is no word on the grounds of Griner's appeal, or when the case will be heard in court. Along with Griner's legal team, the United States is also attempting to bring Griner back home, alleging she has been wrongfully detained.

Griner has been in detention in Russia since February, but even President Joe Biden has expressed his desire to ensure that Griner may soon be with her wife, loved ones, friends, and coworkers.
