WNBA star Brittney Griner in ‘good condition’ in Russian custody

Newsman: The US State Department spokesman Ned Price said U.S. Embassy officials in Russia were finally granted consular access to Brittney Griner and that the WNBA star was in “good condition.” Griner, who also plays professionally in Russia, has been in custody since last month after Russian officials accused her of trying to enter the country with vape cartridges containing hashish oil. Griner has been ordered held in pre-trial detention until May 19.

A conviction could keep her in a Russian prison for 10 years.
