The Moscow Regional Court ruled in favor of upholding the nine-year sentence of imprisoned WNBA basketball star Brittney Griner after her appeal on Tuesday.

Griner was taken into custody at a Moscow airport on February 17 when cannabis oil was found in her luggage. She received a nine-year prison sentence after being convicted on drug smuggling charges.

Her attorneys were expected to argue that the verdict was unjustified and unfair under Russian law, according to CNN.

Griner attended the hearing via video conference, and the outcome of the appeal was expected on Tuesday according to her lawyers Alexander Boykov and Maria Blagovolina.
