BREAKING: Charges Dropped Against Former Giants CB Deandre Baker After Massive Extortion Unveiled
Deandre Baker is in the free and clear.
According to Cameron Wolfe, prosecutors have dropped all charges against the former New York Giants cornerback.
Baker was facing four counts of armed robbery stemming from an incident that also involved Seahawks CB Quinton Dunbar.
The news came after South Florida attorney William Dean was arrested on Monday morning and charged with extortion. According to ESPN’s Jordan Raanan, the extortion attempt was made against Baker.
Dean is the attorney who was representing three of Baker’s four alleged victims. Investigators learned that Dean told Baker’s attorney his clients would do “anything you want, so long as the money is right.”
The 22-year-old is a former first-round pick of the Giants back in 2019.
In 2019, Baker appeared in all 16 games for the Giants and recorded 61 tackles, no interceptions and eight passes defended.
