Moscow — Prisoned American basketball star Brittney Griner is reportedly found guilty of drug smuggling charges in Russia.

“I want to plead guilty, your honor. But I didn’t mean it. I didn’t want to break the law,” Grinner said. Reuters.

NPR Greener reports that he accidentally packed marijuana into his luggage.

Greener’s trial began last week with growing calls for Washington to do more to secure her release about five months after her arrest.

A senior Russian diplomat warned Thursday that US criticisms of how Russia handles the case would not help her prospects for release.

The White House previously said it was pursuing “every way to bring Britney home.”

Greener was detained at the Moscow airport after an arc canister containing hemp oil was found in his luggage.

She faces up to 10 years in prison.
