Brittany Griner pleaded guilty to drug charges in a Russian court on Thursday.

Griner was arrested in February for trying to get vape cartridges containing hemp-oiled oil through a Moscow airport. He could face 10 years in prison.

“I want to be guilty, your honor. But there was no pun intended. I didn’t want to break the law,” she said in court via Reuters.

“I would like to give my testimony later. I need time to prepare,” she said.
