While speaking with ABC News, Griner was asked if she had a message for her wife, Cherelle.
Her response: “Good luck on the bar exam.”
Griner showed up in court holding up two photographs in a clear, plastic sleeve. When asked during the break who was in the photos, she told ABC News: “My wife. My two best friends, my teammates.”
When asked whether she has any complaints, she said: “No, no complaints. Just waiting patiently.”
The 31-year-old Houston native who plays professional basketball for the Phoenix Mercury was returning to Russia to play in the WNBA’s offseason when she was detained at a Moscow airport after being accused of having vape cartridges containing hashish oil, which is illegal in the country.
Griner pleaded guilty on drug charges in court last week, saying that the vape cartridges containing hashish oil were in her luggage mistakenly. She said she had no “intention” of breaking Russian law and did not mean to leave the cartridges in her bag.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist faces up to 10 years in prison and also has a right to an appeal.
