Brittney Griner pleads guilty to drug charges in Russia

At Griner's hearing on Thursday, the 6-foot-9 center was led into the courtroom handcuffed and dressed in a red t-shirt with red pants. She was also seen clutching a water bottle as well as a printed photo of her wife, Cherelle Griner (pictured right). 'I'd like to plead guilty, your honor. But there was no intent. I didn't want to break the law,' Griner said, speaking English which was then translated into Russian for the court, according to a Reuters journalist in the courtroom. 'I'd like to give my testimony later. I need time to prepare,' she added.

Fury at woke Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg for prosecuting hardworking bodega employee, 62, who stabbed career criminal to death in self defense: GoFundMe REMOVES the man's $20k legal fund as he languishes in Riker's on $250,000 bond

There is mounting anger over woke Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg's decision to charge a 62-year-old bodega employee with murder for killing a career criminal in self-defense after the thug attacked him in his store. Jose Alba is in Rikers Island this morning awaiting his first court appearance on charges of murder. His bail has been set at $250,000 - an exorbitant amount compared with the low-or-no cash bail that is routinely given to repeat offenders by Bragg's soft-touch office. On Friday night, Alba stabbed Austin Simon to death after Simon attacked him in the Bluemoon Convenient Store in Harlem. Alba, who is beloved in the local community, has worked there for decades and has no criminal record. His family launched a GoFundMe page to help pay his legal expenses - but the page was removed on Wednesday night after raising $20,000. GoFundMe is yet to explain the decision. Over the weekend, Alba was arraigned on a second degree murder charge and Bragg's office asked the judge to set Alba's bail at $500,000 - which the judge deemed too high. Alba has not yet been indicted; his case is going before a grand jury on Saturday.

Located almost 500 miles from India, the nearest continental land mass, the world's lowest-lying nation hopes to have come up with a sustainable solution to the stark reality of rising sea levels.
