"Is Bloomberg law with June grosso from Bloomberg radio. After months of attention, basketball star Brittany griner pleaded guilty last week to drug possession in a Russian court, but Russian courts are not like American courts, and though her conviction is certain, it's unclear when her trial leave an end, and what will happen afterwards. Joining me is Jeffrey Kahn, a professor at SMU's dedman school of law. What exactly did she plead guilty to? Well, Brittany griner was detained on February 17th that share much of an airport outside of Moscow and news reports and excerpts from video cameras suggested that a sniffer dog alerted to her luggage, which when customers officials opened it, it was alleged to contain hashish oil in a couple of vape pens. Now hashish from marijuana is an unlawful substance in the Russian Federation. And because it happened at the border, miss griner was charged with violating article two two 9 one two C of the Russian Federation criminal code, which essentially is the prohibition on smuggling. This act because it was alleged that she had smuggled a quote significant amount of unlawful substances into the country had a potential penalty of between 5 and ten years in prison. So now, as you mentioned, she's been in prison since February, why didn't she plead guilty earlier? Well, that's a complicated question. And there are two ways of answering it. One is she didn't have the opportunity. She was placed in a Russian jail and subjected to pretrial detention while the state began its investigation. And so she didn't have under Russian law, really any opportunity to do so earlier. There is a so called special trial procedure in Russia, which is the rough equivalent of a guilty plea which in our system you would expect to happen rather quickly. But miss greiner's charged offense didn't qualify for that treatment because her crime was one that required a specific intent and very few relatively speaking serious crimes are allowed to even use this special trial procedure. The larger longer answer is the Russian criminal justice system operates on very different principles than the U.S. adversarial system. It operates based more on a continental European approach, which although it's been influenced by adversarial principles still relies on something called a case file. And this case file is completely in the control of the state. It is this folder or binder that contains all the evidence that a court will consider. In an American court, nothing counts as evidence unless it's been provided through live witness testimony. In a Russian court, if it's not in the case file, it didn't happen. And although there are some opportunities for a defense attorney to ask for things to be included in the case file, everything everything is in the control of the states investigator, the sled the volatile, and although that official is supposed to be independent from the prosecutor and that's supposed to preserve an equality of arms between the parties, there is always this anxiety that the state can put its thumb on the scale with as much pressure as it wants. So what happens next? Does she get sentenced next? Well, the next hearing is scheduled for July 14th. And in the Russian system, an imposition of punishment, the sentencing, usually is done in very close proximity with the court's conclusion that the defendant is guilty of a crime. So conviction and sentence usually come very close together. That's another big difference between the U.S. approach and the Russian approach. In the U.S. approach where we really separate, we bifurcate that that sentencing phase from the guilt determining phase, an individual complete no guilty, not guilty, put the state through all of its efforts to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. And if that happens, then the individual can try to present all of the. Reasons why a lesser sentence should be imposed. There is very little time in the Russian system for contrition to happen. The judge is going to impose that sentence very quickly. And so it may be that miss griner was given the advice that if she wanted to be able to influence the size of her sentence, now was the time. In the beginning, it seemed like people weren't talking about it that much. Then a few weeks ago, all that seemed to change, and sort of a full court press, her wife doing interviews on TV, griner, riding the letter to Biden, players and coaches, chiming in. Why the change in strategy do you think? People who have been involved in this sort of circumstance. And it's a horrific thing to go through. And so our sympathies really have to be with miss griner and her family and her supporters because it's very hard to know exactly what to do. On the one hand, people who have been through this say that they're often given to the advice that the United States government could act in their interests best if there isn't a lot of attention. And since miss griner was arrested just a week before the Russian Federation engaged its war of aggression against Ukraine, that may have been very good advice. Don't let her become a bargaining chip. Let's see if we can quietly figure out what's going on and if at all possible get this resolved very, very quickly. Coming up, we'll find out what changed.

"Is the CNN political briefing. It's Wednesday, November 24th. We're going to be talking about the Supreme Court, because the nation's highest court is smack in the middle of politics today. A bush in his abortion is. The nation is divided over a court issue that's been front and center. In elections for about 50 years. And that is, the right We'll explore two laws from Texas and Mississippi that are forcing the court to address abortion rights yet again. How the court rules in upcoming weeks and months can play into the 2022 midterm election. To understand where we are now with the Supreme Court and abortion, we need some context about where the Supreme Court has been. Roe V wade is the case that started it all. The justice is in 1973 ruled by a 72 vote. The state could not prohibit a woman from deciding to end a pregnancy before viability. That's the point at which a fetus can survive outside the womb. That's now estimated at 22 to 24 weeks of pregnancy. Now, viability is a term you're going to hear a lot of at this episode. Because that cutoff line was crucial to the road decision and is at stake in the new controversy at the Supreme Court. The court in 1973 grounded the right to end a pregnancy in the Fourteenth Amendment's due process guarantee of personal liberty. What's interesting to note here, especially on a political podcast is that the times were not as politically polarized back then, as they are today, and Republicans actually played leading roles in crafting the decision. Roe V wade was then upheld in the Planned Parenthood versus Casey dispute in 1992 by a much more bitter vote. That was 5 to four. Some of us as individuals find abortion offensive to our most basic principles of morality, but that can't control our decisions. We reaffirm the constitutionally protected liberty of the woman to decide to have an abortion before the fetus attains viability and to obtain it without undue interference from the state. That was just a Sandra Day O'Connor, the first woman on the Supreme Court, reading portions of her opinion from the bench. But that decision nearly 30 years ago, of course, was not the end of the matter. And this wouldn't be a political podcast if we didn't talk about political polling on this issue. A majority of American support roe V wade being upheld about 60%, while 27% say it should be overturned. That's according to a recent ABC News Washington Post poll. Still, strong opposition to roe V wade lingers. States continue to pass anti abortion laws and those laws are continually challenged. We're going to talk now about the two cases before the Supreme Court that could give states the power to restrict even completely outlaw abortions. We start with Texas. On.
