Brittney Griner: US basketball player sentenced to nine years in Russian jail over drug charges | World News
A Russian judge has sentenced American basketball player Brittney Griner to nine years in prison over drug charges.
President Biden described the jail term as “unacceptable” and called for her immediate release.
Judge Anna Sotnikova said the time Griner has served in custody since her arrest in February would count towards the sentence.
Griner reacted to the term with little emotion and listened to the verdict with a blank stare on her face.
