US basketball player convicted in Russia appeals court verdict


MOSCOW, Aug 15 Defending an American sentenced to 9 years in prison for drug smuggling basketball player Brittney Griner filed an appeal against the verdict, lawyer Maria Blagovolina said. “Brittney Griner's defense team filed an appeal against the verdict of the Khimki court,” the agency's interlocutor said. In early August, the Khimki court of the Moscow Region sentenced Brittney Griner to 9 years in prison with a fine of one million rubles. The court found her guilty of smuggling and storing hash oil. In February, Greiner, who arrived on a flight from New York, was detained at Sheremetyevo Airport. During the inspection, American women found “vapes” with a liquid with a specific smell weighing just under a gram (0.702 g) in their hand luggage – the examination later determined that this was hash oil.
