Brittney Griner pleads guilty


On Thursday, WNBA star Brittney Griner pleaded guilty to drug charges and now faces up to 10 years in a Russian prison.

“I’d like to plead guilty, your honor. But there was no intent. I didn’t want to break the law,” Griner said.

The National anthem boycotter was arrested in February after she was allegedly caught carrying two vape cartridges with cannabis oil in them at a Moscow airport. She has been held in custody since then.
