WNBA star Brittney Griner was sentenced Thursday to nine years in a Russian prison. This comes after she pleaded guilty to drug possession charges for carrying a cannabis-derived vape cartridge into the country in her luggage back in February. WBAL-TV 11 News has more on what this means for U.S. - Russia relations. Dr. Mortimer Sellers, director of the Center of International and Comparative Law at the University of Baltimore, said the sentence is in line with Russian law. Griner called it an "honest mistake."
