Brittney Griner's Wife Cherelle Demands Govt. Action To Free Her
Cherelle Griner has only spoken to her wife Brittney Griner “sporadically” via letter mail since she’s been detained in a Russian jail. Now, she’s demanding action from President Biden to bring the WNBA star home.
Speaking publicly about her wife’s ordeal for the first time on Good Morning America today,Griner opened up to Robin Roberts about how her wife is holding up while being held in a Russian jail facility for 100 days now.
Griner was detained in February 2022 as she entered the country to begin her stint with the Russian women’s basketball team. She was found to have a vape pen and several cartridges of hashish oil, a forbidden substance in Russia, and charged with “large-scale transportation of drugs.”
She says the news of the WNBA’s support has kept her spirits high, particularly the league’s decision to bear her initials and jersey number on the sidelines of all 12 teams’ home courts.
