Appeal Date Set For Griner Hearing

(Russia) — Court officials say an appeal date has been set for Brittney Griner’s drug possession hearing in Russia. The 31-year-old will appear in court on October 25th after authorities say the W-N-B-A star was found in possession of hash oil in her luggage at a Moscow airport. She was sentenced to nine years in a Russian prison back in August. The Biden administration is still trying to negotiate with Kremlin officials for her release.
