For some reason it feels like the President of Russia is trying to make a point with hold this WNBA star in prison. Brittney Griner’s appeal of her nine-year sentence on drug charges has been denied in court. The Tuesday decision from the Moscow court was expected by U.S. and international officials. It is a sad situation for this young lady. “The verdict contains numerous defects and we hoped that the court of appeal would take them into consideration,” said Griner’s attorneys, Maria Blagovolina and Alexander Boykov. “We still think the punishment is excessive and contradicts to the existing court practice.” Griner was arrested on Feb. 17 and has been held for eight months.
