Expert Says Brittney Griner Could Spend 5 Years In A Russian Labor Camp At least one analyst believes things could get really bad for Brittney Griner. Appearing on Fox News, Russian law expert Peter Maggs said Griner’s case could potentially result in a 5-10 year prison sentence – and include time at a labor camp. The 31-year-old WNBA star was arrested earlier this year after Russian officials allegedly found vape cartridges containing cannabis oil.   Maggs also said Griner could be innocent – he says Russian authorities have been known to plant drugs on people “if the regime wanted to get them in trouble”. What should the U.S. government do about Griner’s arrest?  Is it possible she’s being used as a pawn by the Russian government?
