A Russian judge found WNBA star Brittney Griner guilty Thursday morning. She has been sentenced to nine years.

This comes after Griner was detained on Feb. 17 at the Moscow airport after vape cartridges containing oil derived from cannabis were allegedly found in her luggage, which could carry a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
