Former WNBA star Britney Greiner is facing a ten-year prison sentence
American basketball player Britney Greiner, who is in prison in Russia, pleaded guilty to drug smuggling.
Greiner was arrested in February after a bottle of cannabis oil was found in her luggage.
Because of this violation, the American basketball player faces ten years in prison.
At today’s appearance before the judge, Greiner said that she was not aware that she was breaking the law.
“Honorable judge, I plead guilty. I had no intention of breaking the law, it really wasn’t my goal,” said Greiner, addressing the judge in Moscow.
She added that she needed time to prepare, so the trial was postponed for a week.
Britney Greiner is one of the best basketball players in the women’s professional league (WNBA) in the USA, and she was a member of the Phoenix Mercury.
She went to Russia to play there while the season is off in the United States.
She has been a member of UGMK Yekaterinburg since 2014, and she also played in the Euroleague for women.
With the USA national team, she won two gold medals at the Olympic Games.
