DeAndre Baker might’ve struck gold when selecting his lawyer. The New York Giants second-year cornerback turned himself in to police Saturday after being charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault.
Baker’s attorney, Bradford Cohen, has a history of helping athletes get out of trouble.
It was back in 2012 when Dennis Rodman owed $179,000 worth of child support, but Cohen used his expert skills to get it lowered from $50,000 to $3,500 a month. Three years before that, Plaxico Burress had four traffic tickets thrown out thanks to Cohen.
Outside of sports, Cohen repped Record producer Steve Storch and had his charges of grand theft in 2009 dismissed. Rapper Vanilla Ice had a grand theft case reduced to 100 hours of community service and paying $1,333 to a neighbor for theft, due to Cohen, as well.
Basically, Cohen knows what he is doing.
Cohen is accused of holding a semi-automatic weapon and faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years for each of the four armed robbery charges.
