The former U.S. Marine was detained in Russia for over three years. While visiting his Russian girlfriend in Moscow in the summer of 2019, the Texas native Marine was detained. He was accused by Russian authorities of attacking police officers while he was being taken to a police station. In the middle of 2020, he was found guilty by a Russian court and given a nine-year jail term. The country of Brittney Griner has been attempting to bring her back for almost 7 months. The government has been urged to step up attempts to get the WNBA star back as quickly as possible by her family, attorneys, friends, and other athletes from across the world.

Since Brittney Griner was detained on February 17 at Sheremetyevo International Airport on suspicion of possessing illicit vape cartridges containing hashish oil, Russian officials have been taking a vigilant eye on her. Like many other female basketball players, Griner competes abroad during the WNBA offseason to ramp up her earnings and sharpen her game. UMMC Ekaterinburg played in the Russian Women’s Basketball Premier League, which Griner was representing at the time of her arrest. Even though her lawyers had filed an appeal of the ruling in August since cannabis oil is prohibited in Russia, she was given a nine-year jail sentence.

Trevor Reed shares his story in the Russian prison

In August, Trevor Reed made an appearance on CBS Mornings to talk about the terrible judicial system and jail conditions in Russia. He pointed out that Griner is probably being imprisoned in a forced labor camp after being held when found guilty. Reed implied: “The cells there are, you know, extremely dirty and food there is, you know, really bad. A lot of times the food there is rotten.” Reed was charged with assault against Russian police officers in Russia in 2020 as a result of a drunken night out in Moscow the year before. Reed was freed in exchange for a drug smuggler after serving three years of a nine-year sentence in Russian prison.

Trevor Reed pointed out that the jail where Brittney Griner is being confined is probably far better than the one where Paul Whelan, another Marine, is being held. If he had any guidance for the convicts, it would be to try to always keep in mind how many individuals support for them. Reed urged Griner and Whelan to persevere and maintain their faith as U.S. authorities strive to return them home. The WNBA star’s release hasn’t changed significantly as of today, but we anticipate learning more about her upcoming release from prison and return to the United States soon.
