WNBA star Brittney Griner is currently serving nine years in a Russian prison on drug charges after being detained at an airport with small amounts of hash oil. On Oct. 25, Griner, who had just celebrated her 32nd birthday a week prior, was delivered the news that her request to an appeal had been denied and her nine-year sentence would be upheld.
Critics feel President Joe Biden has turned his back on Griner, who has been held in Russia for almost a year. However, Biden assured the nation that his administration is still fighting to bring the Phoenix Mercury star home.
