The Phoenix Mercury center and WNBA all-star was detained at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport in February while returning to play basketball in Russia. Police said they found vape canisters containing cannabis oil in her luggage. In custody ever since, Griner, 31, faces charges that could bring her a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.
Favre has not been charged with any criminal wrongdoing and has repaid the money.
Pigott, in seeking more information about the $5 million payment to USM, was exploring the involvement of former NFL quarterback Brett Favre and former Mississippi governor Phil Bryant, among others. Favre played college football at USM an his daughter played volleyball at the school in 2017 and 2018.
[/size=5]Early in his NFL career, Favre developed a dependence on painkillers to bounce back from on-field injuries. A month in rehab wasn't enough to quell the habit, and the QB began ingesting up to 15 Vicodin pills per day even as he was putting up MVP numbers. After suffering a seizure that may have been related to his Vicodin intake, Favre in May 1996 announced that he was entering the NFL's substance-abuse program, but continued to battle his drinking demons, leading to another stint in rehab in 1998[/size]
Just like you do every day Wilson. Don't deny it, I've watched you hit the pipe MANY times.
Fully paid indeed. When you're not stealing you're begging.
I haven't seen him in a while. I worked with Chuck at an apartment complex here in Wilmington, til his brother hit the SC lottery. He was pretty quiet, but he could get wound up sometimes.
Makes me remember Charles' attempt to troll Conchaga. Well, That's the Charles I knew very well, which is why I don't respond to him begging to meet me.
Brittney Griner sentenced to nine years in Russian prison
A Russian court sentenced WNBA star Brittney Griner to nine years in prison Thursday, an expected conclusion to her trial that should allow negotiations for a prisoner swap to accelerate. Griner, who was arrested Feb. 17 for bringing cannabis into the country, had been prepared for a harsh sentence, sources close to the player said. But she and her supporters have also been aware that Russia was not going to move forward with a trade that could bring her home until her trial was completed. A guilty verdict was considered a foregone conclusion, and Griner pleaded guilty July 7, though the case continued under Russian law. During sentencing, Judge Anna Sotnikova said she had found that Griner intentionally broke the law and also fined her 1 million rubles (about $16,700). Sotnikova said the time Griner has served in custody since her arrest in February would count toward the sentence. Griner reacted to the sentence with little emotion, listening to the verdict with a blank stare on her face.
