A British Iranian woman detained in Iran for reportedly trying to watch a men’s volleyball game in a stadium has been sentenced to one year in prison, her attorney said to Iranian news outlets.

Ghoncheh Ghavami, 26, who traveled to Iran earlier this year, was arrested June 20 for trying to enter the Azadi Stadium and has been kept in Iranian government custody since.

Ghavami’s attorney added that the sentence has not officially been set by Iran’s judiciary and can still be ‘reduced.’
