She has been held in a Russian jail for months as her legal team fights for her freedom, and Brittney Griner returned to court today (July 26) for her fifth hearing. Earlier this year, the WNBA star and Olympic gold medalist was detained while traveling through an airport. Russian officials claimed that she was found with hashish oil, an illegal substance in the country, but Griner’s attorney’s argued that the small amount was used as a painkiller, prescribed by her physician.Weeks ago, Griner pleaded guilty to charges, but her legal team reportedly told ABC News that that plea was only agreed upon following recommendations by Griner’s lawyers in Russia.
