The verdict against Griner could be followed by the consideration of an offer for his release that could lead to a internee exchange between the US and Russia.
Under this, a offer was being made to release a notorious Russian runner of munitions serving a judgment in America in exchange for Griner.
Griner acknowledged that she had unintentionally packed vape pens containing cannabis oil in her suitcase.
Brittany pleaded with the judge before the sentence was handed down, pleading with him not to sentence her to a harsh prison term that would “end her life.”
