Griner loses appeal, likely heading to Russian penal colony on minor possession charge



Basketball star Brittney Griner’s appeal of her nine-year prison sentence was denied yesterday by a Russian court, possibly ending the legal avenues for the player detained since February on a minor cannabis charge. 

Griner, whose wife Cherelle Griner is from Little Rock, was arrested in Russia in February for carrying hashish oil in a vape cartridge.
