WNBA star Brittney Griner has pleaded guilty to drug charges and now faces up to 10 years in a Russian prison.
At Griner's hearing on Thursday, the 6-foot-9 center was led into the courtroom handcuffed and dressed in a red t-shirt with red pants. She was also seen clutching a water bottle as well as a printed photo of her wife, Cherelle Griner.
'I'd like to plead guilty, your honor. But there was no intent. I didn't want to break the law,' Griner said, speaking English which was then translated into Russian for the court, according to a Reuters journalist in the courtroom.
'I'd like to give my testimony later. I need time to prepare,' she added.
