Brittney Griner’s appeal of her nine-year prison sentence on drug charges was rejected by a Moscow court.
Griner did ‘not expect miracles’ at her appeal hearing, her lawyers said, but did hope to see her sentence cut.
She’s been sentenced to nine years in a Russian penal colony, but has been staying in a Moscow prison.
There remains hope that Griner could return to the United States as part of a prisoner swap with Russia.
Joe Biden’s White House is now calling for Griner’s immediate release and saying she’s ‘wrongfully detained,‘according to NBC News.
