“In Russia, once you’re charged, there’s a 99% likelihood of being convicted, so we’re really into this situation where I hope diplomatic measures will work in finding the truth and bringing Brittney Griner home,” said Valena Beety, a law professor at Arizona State University that has written books about wrongfully convicted women. Beety believes Griner’s identity and race placed a role in the drug charges against her.
