Congressional Black Caucus statement on Brittney Griner receiving 9 year prison sentence

The Congressioanl Black Caucus released the following statement after American women's basketball star Brittney Griner was convicted of deliberately smuggling drugs into Russia and sentenced to nine years of jail time.

The sentencing of #BrittneyGriner was truly unfortunate. As we have said from the beginning, Ms. Griner has been wrongfully detained in Russia, which is unacceptable.

We will continue our calls for the Biden Administration to use every tool at its disposal to ensure her release and that she is returned to her family.
