WNBA star Brittney Griner was arrested a month ago in Moscow’s main airport. On Thursday it was announced that she would be held without trial until at least May 19th. She currently faces charges that could carry a sentence of up to 10-years in prison.
Upon arrival in Moscow during her seventh season playing professional basketball in Russia during the WNBA’s off-season, Griner was arrested for allegedly possessing cartridges containing ‘liquid with hashish oil’, according to the customs service.
