On Thursday, a Russian court found Brittney Griner guilty of attempted drug trafficking and possession. In accordance with CNN, The verdict states that Brittney had criminal intent when she attempted to enter the country with less than 1 gram of marijuana oil in her luggage.

Before the sentencing, Russian prosecutors asked the court to consider giving the WNBA star 9.5 years in prison. Shortly after news of the verdict broke, Brittney’s lawyers confirmed that the Russian court was accepting the prosecutors’ request. As a result, he was sentenced to nine years in a penal colony, in The New York Times.

Brittney Apologized and Denied Criminal Intent Before Sentencing

The decision comes after Brittney pleaded guilty in early July. At that time he said, “I would like to plead guilty, your honor, but there was no intention, I did not break the law.” He also addressed the court during Thursday’s arguments.

“I never meant to hurt anybody, I never meant to put the Russian people at risk, I never meant to break any law here,” Brittney said. “I made an honest mistake and I hope that in your decision that will not end my life here.”

As previously reported, immigration officials detained Brittney in February at a Moscow airport. They had found two vape cartridges containing hashish oil in his luggage. In May, the United States declared that Brittney was “unreasonably imprisoned,” but that did little to help her case.

Concerns that Russia was using Brittney as a political prisoner surfaced immediately after news of her arrest. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin denied those allegations. Speaking through a lawyer named Dmitry Peskov, the president said Brittney “violated Russian law” in relation to the hashish oil, and the case “is not about being a hostage.”
