Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker, who is currently on the Commissioner’s Exempt List while he tries to clear his name after being accused of committing armed robbery and aggravated assault, has been formally charged with four counts of robbery with a firearm, the Broward (Florida) County prosecutor announced on Friday.
Seattle cornerback Quinton Dunbar was not charged due to what prosecutors described as “insufficient evidence.”
The 22-year-old Baker was accused of wielding a firearm steal designer watches and cash from multiple victims. He is facing a minimum of 10 years in prison and up to life as well.
Baker’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, would soon take to social media and rip prosecutors for their actions:
“Disgusting and no I won’t hold back on behalf of this young man,” Cohen wrote. “To charge a young man based on admitted liars testimony is why we need a change in Broward from the old guard.”
Cohen went on to vow to “expose the hypocrisy at the case filing level, the way the office of the state attorney ‘teamed up’ with these convicted felons and offered them to come in and explain why they changed their stories multiple times without fear of prosecution.”
