According to the Associated Press, the odds are not in Griner's favor: fewer than 1% of defendants in Russian criminal cases are acquitted. And even in the case a defendant is found not guilty, acquittals can be overturned in Russia, unlike in the Unites States.

Sounds like she will end up being a negotiation pawn to exchange for the russian in US jail known as the Merchant of Death.

Ridiculous, the russians dont consider her a prize, she's a circus animal to them. they'll keep her just for amusement.
 
Agree it’s ridiculous but this is exactly why you know the laws in other countries you visit! Don’t put yourself in this position especially after claiming this country is racist. Now she is begging the greatest country in the world to get her ass back home! Very ironic….

Especially A Communist C Sucking Country Like Russia.

Less Than 1 % Of Criminal Cases In Russia Result In A Not Guilty Verdict.

If Acquitted, Russian Government Can Appeal A Not Guilty Verdict.

In USA, Government Cannot Appeal A Not Guilty Verdict.

Only Defendant Can Appeal A Guilty Verdict.

Apparently they consider it a serious crime, so yea, she should have known, and i suspect she did know. She likely had brought the stuff in other times and had no consequences so she thought nothing of it.

Considering she's an anti american piece of crap i hope they keep her for years.

I smoked everyday for over 15 years straight from 1998ish til 2013. Went on an 8 day business trip to Moscow and didn't even begin to think about bringing weed to smoke or trying to get some when I get there. Struggled sleeping the 1st night or so but common sense just has to play a role sometimes.

Griner has supposedly played in russia many times over last last few years - she was a member of a russian team, she knew the rules.

It's quite possible her team arranged it/bribed people to ignore her small pot stash in the past and this time she paid the price.
